I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!Show More
She’s awesome! I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time already

Jordan was great for me. She helped me find my problem areas and where I can improve. Very knowledgeable!
Awesome instructor, Jordan made me feel comfortable, and I’m pretty much incapable of dancing - I leaned a bunch of cool stuff in just the first lesson. I’m excited to continue learning.
