Dancing has been a passion of hers for as long as she can remember. She went to the first dance class as a teen where she learnt hip hop, contemporary and Salsa. Latin styles of dance soon became her favorite, joining performance teams, performing and competing in New Zealand and Australia. After college, Jessica went to Excel school of Performing Arts in Auckland, where she completed her advanced certificate in Performing Arts. In the years following Jessica has:
-Taught in Nelson at Salsa Buena
-Was in the teaching team at Salsa Magic in Wellington
-Performed multiple times at the New Zealand Salsa Congress
-Competed in Brisbane Salsa congress, taking home a first and second in her team and duo performances.
-Was a teacher at the Bachata festival ran by the Capital Bachata Collective in Wellington
Jessica is looking forward to being a part of the dance community of Whanganui and sharing her love of dance with all those at the Salsa Beginners classes and the Dance Workout classes.
So this is what I’ve got so far, please edit and add to it as you desire
“I enjoy the soulful rhythm of Salsa and Bachata, connecting with the music, the movement and with others through the elements of dance.”
