Jessica started dancing at the age of 2 in Rowlett, TX. She pursued dance in many ways as a young child and in her high school years. She competed with both her drill team and competitive studio teams and was also in theatre and musicals. She attended The University of Texas at Austin and received her BFA in August of 2015. While attending UT, Jessica had the pleasure of working with many current choreographers and with the classical works of choreographers, the late Robert Battle (Brooklyn) of BattleWorks, Paul Taylor (New York), Charles O. Anderson (Austin), Kate Watson-Wallace (Brooklyn), and her favorite Mark Morris (Brooklyn) of Mark Morris Dance Group. She also got to choreograph in many student-run shows as well as her final main stage show as a senior member of Dance Repertoire Theater. Upon graduating in 2015, Jessica auditioned for us and has been a season regular for 5 years. Jessica has taught dance all over Austin and is currently a teacher at Alisa’s Dance Academy. Jessica also manages a local dance retailer boutique, The Dancer’s Closet, in Westlake, and is the Social Media and Ambassador Coordinator.
