About Us

 

Jen

Jen is our owner and head coach.  Jen is certified through CLI Studios, ensuring she is continuing her dance education. She has been certified by USA Gymnastics, has taught all-around gymnastics and tumbling and has extensive knowledge in cheerleading. She wants to be able to provide kids with a way to have fun and learn to tumble and dance, but also to learn proper technique to avoid injury both short-term and long-term. She majored in child development at the U (Go Utes!), loves working with kids and is an adrenaline junkie. Her favorite dance styles are Latin ballroom and hip hop, but she loves to choreograph all styles of dance. Her choreography has won numerous awards at competitions and conventions and she has created National Champions out of her students. Jen took two of her students under her wing, and in two short years made them the 2018 National Amateur Dancesport Champions in Junior I & II Rhythm.
 Jen is available for Master Classes or to choreograph group routines, solos/duos/trios, wedding dances, or as a judge. She is willing to travel to meet new students and studios and looks forward to traveling each year to place choreography on her favorite studios. Her energy is contagious and she will leave you exhausted yet wanting more!
