Jessica practically grew up in a dance studio in Long Island, NY. She spent several hours a day in tap, ballet, jazz and pointe classes. Her first experience with teaching was in middle school, when she took over a recreational dance program. Jessica was also the captain of her high school Kickline dance team and choreographed the majority of the routines for her college dance team. She has performed at many events, including half time shows and competitions. She has a Master’s of Science Degree, and works full-time in the non-dance world, but says she often finds herself tap dancing while on the phone, sitting at a desk or even waiting in line at the supermarket! Jessica says she needs dance in her life and has been happy to adopt the DWMSOD family. She is the proud mommy of a 6-year-old daughter – who also tries to join every class she can at DWMSOD!
