Hi! My name is Jessica and I LOVE to teach creative dance and music to families with babies to children age 5!
Over 10 years ago my first daughter was born. Her birth inspired me to leave my job as an early childhood intervention teacher and start my dream career as a full time dance teacher. While the market was saturated with dance programs for children over the age of 5, I couldn't find a high quality, developmentally based, FUN early childhood dance and music program for babies, toddlers and preschoolers...
Combining my background in education (I have minors in special education, early childhood education, and fine arts education), dance and music (I grew up performing professionally in Musical Theatre shows), I began offering dance classes with my daughter around my city.
I could not keep up as a one woman show, so I hired and trained other dance teachers (many of whom were moms with young kids, like me!) to join my team. Three years later I had another beautiful baby girl and my own successful dance studio!
By this time I had many other dance teachers and studio owners bringing their own babies and toddlers to my classes. They were intrigued by the incredible success of studio and wanted to bring my methodology and programs to their own studios.
Over the next few years, I would host a yearly, in-studio Intellidance® Method Certification to dance teachers and studios interested offering Intellidance, but also professionals, such as music teachers, occupational therapists, childcare workers, librarians, and psychologists, who worked with young children and were interested in applying the Intellidance® Method and activities to their own practices.
At the same time J'Adore Dance had grown into a one room studio (yes, you read that right, one room) that was serving over 1200 dancers and offering over 70 classes per week!
The key to the studio's ongoing success and profitability was my commitment to the best early childhood dance classes possible. Over 400 of our dancers were under the age of 5. Once the children aged out of the Intellidance® programs they stayed at my studio because they had grown up with us, many since they were only a few months old. We weren't just a dance studio, we were family!
Since selling my studio in 2016, I have successfully trained hundreds professionals from all over the world in the Intellidance® Method and am thrilled to see Certified Intellidance® Teachers find success, profitability, and joy!
My goal is to ignite your passion for early childhood dance, increase your confidence, expertise and satisfaction as a dance teacher, and reduce your levels of frustration and stress!
If this sounds like the next step in your professional evolution I invite you to join me and our growing community of Intellidance® Teachers from all over the world!
