5 Questions with Jen

1. How long have you been teaching?

This is my second year teaching at PacWest.

2.What made you want to be a teacher?

I love children. I love dance. There is nothing better than teaching children how to dance! Dance is a gift! It absolutely changed my life for the better. I hope to pass that happiness on to my students.

3. What are you teaching philosophies?

My desire is to teach children to love dance, but more importantly themselves! I hope to inspire these young dancers to dream with their body in a patient environment that is uplifting, encouraging, and challenging. The benefits of dance are limitless and include self-confidence, discipline, strength, flexibility, grace, personal expression, happiness, and a passion that lasts a lifetime! Dance is an art that imprints on the soul!

 4. What kind of music do you listen to when not teaching?

I enjoy many different genres of music, depending on my mood. Country always makes me happy. I tend to listen to female artists, because I like to sing along!

5. What non-dancing hobbies do you have?

I have a new hobby of playing wii with my 6 year old son. :-) I have always loved reading, watching movies, family time, shopping, and traveling!
