Jessica began dancing at her mother’s dance school at the age of 3. She is trained in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and musical theatre. At the age of 16 her passion extended to commercial dance which led to extensive training in hip hop and other styles such as dancehall, hip hop in heels, house and waacking.
Jess has been lucky enough to travel frequently and has trained with internationally renowned choreographers at Millenium Dance Complex LA, Debbie Reynolds Studios LA, Patrick Studios Melbourne and Brent Street Sydney. In 2014 she was awarded a scholarship to Broadway Dance Centre New York and she recently used the scholarship to further her training in a variety of genres.
Jess has been dancing professionally for over 10 years and has performed at events such as Boobalicious Ball, Perth Glory, Danny Green, Perth Cup, Telethon (Samantha Jade) & Pink Ribbon Ball. She was also a backup dancer with Absolute Kylie which included a performance on Australia’s Got Talent.
Jess continues to perform professionally and is currently part of the Greenroom Entertainment Agency. She is also one fifth of Perth-based vocal/dance act Nylon and the girl group have scored exciting gigs such as Future Music Festival, Summadayze and Perth Fashion festival. Nylon have also supported international artists including TLC, Samantha Jade, Jay Sean & Ciara.
Jess has taught at various dance schools in Perth and her passion for dance and knowledge of the industry is something she hopes to pass on to her students.
Jessica teaches beginners hip hop on Wednesdays from 5:30pm-6:45pm, and Sexy Street Jazz from 8:00pm-9:15pm
