With over 16 years of dance experience and a teacher by profession, Jessica is happiest when she is able to share her passion for dance with others. Growing up as both an athletic and musical individual, Jessica became an accomplished rhythmic gymnast at a young age and was selected to be a member of the Canadian National Rhythmic Gymnastics team, who participated in the World Championships in 1998. After retiring from the sport, Jessica discovered her true desire to express herself through the union of music and movement. It led her to explore many styles of dance, including performances and competitions in jazz, tap, ballet, acro, bachata and salsa. Most recently, Jessica has focused her passion on the instruction of latin dance and Zumba, and has performed at some of Canada's largest latin dance events such as the Canada Salsa Congress, the Montreal Salsa Convention, the Toronto Salsa Festival, and the Festival MueveTres.
