Jess is very excited to share her passion for dance with Element Dance Arts! Growing up, she trained in many styles of dance, including tap, jazz, RAD ballet and lyrical. She continued into high-school where she became the captain and lead choreographer of her high school dance team, earning an award and scholarship for her work. She learned early on that she wanted to not only perform, but also pass on her training and passion for dance when she began volunteering as a dance teachers’ assistant. Watching students learn and grow not only as dancers, but as human beings is her favourite part of her role. She graduated from her training and began teaching and choreographing on her own. Jess believes in continuing her dance education, and makes an effort to attend various workshops and classes in KW, Toronto and New York City to improve her technique and keep current within the industry. In addition, since becoming a dance teacher and choreographer, Jess has graduated with a Honours Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing, with minor in Economics from Wilfrid Laurier University. Jess is honoured to be a part of the team at Element Dance Arts!
