“My daughter took ballet from Jessica over the years. Jessica is a very warm and supportive teacher. She fosters a nurturing environment where dancers challenge themselves, while learning the proper technique. Over the years, I have seen Jessica turn students who took ballet as requirement into dancers who were passionate about the art form. I have had the privilege of observing Jessica classes over the years. She is an excellent teacher and choreographer for all age groups. Her passion for her craft is infectious. As a parent, I can attest that she is very approachable and a joy to be around.”
