Jennifer LOVES the challenge of ballet "I love that I will never be perfect. There is always a goal to strive for, always room to push further, turn more and jump higher. As a dancer, I am encouraged to test the limits of humanity and supersede into the ethereal, the beyond, to create for our audience an experience rather than a show."
Her tips for beginners Be confident! You CAN dance, no matter what you’ve been told by the world. Smile! It makes the hard stuff easier. Always breathe. I am here to help you achieve your dreams. I'm your biggest ballet fan.
"Ballet lessons are fun! When teaching a ballet lesson, I will assess my student's technical level and help them understand where their strengths lie, and what we can continue to improve. I use a positive approach in ballet classes to keep my students encouraged and enjoying themselves!!"
