Jenna began her dance and performing career at age 9. After training at Impact Dance of Atlanta for twelve years, Jenna was invited to join the staff of very accomplished instructors. Jenna was then promoted to the Director of The Impact Dance Crew.
Jenna’s training includes master classes with The Georgia Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Ballet Rotaru and Hubbard Street in Chicago, Il. Jenna was accepted into the Summer Intensive program at Ballet Magnificat! for five consecutive seasons, also participating in the Ballet Magnificat! Trainee Program. Jenna is eager to continue to her personal dance training and has attended Word In Motion’s Urban Dance Intensive Workshop in Los Angeles, as well as receiving her certification in Zumba Fitness. Jenna has taken several classes with many aspiring choreographers, such as Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo, Marty Kudelka, Kevin Maher, Luther Brown, Nick Demoura, Tony Testa, and many more!
Jenna’s lead roles during her dance career, including “Mary” lead soloist in “The Toymaker’s Christmas”, “Don Quixote” Pas de Deux & variation solo, “Paquita” variation solo, “Carmen” variation solo, and also “Waltz of the Flowers”, “Marzipan”, and “Snow” variations from “Nutcracker”.
As Director of Impact Dance Crew, Jenna teaches and choreographs hip-hop, jazz and contemporary dance styles for outreach in the community. The Impact Dance Crew performs at local events in the community, schools and churches.
Jenna’s personal goal as a teacher is to see her students grow as dancers and as individuals. She desires to teach them to dance from their heart and also have fun in class! Another reason she loves teaching is because she loves to make people smile. She wants to help her students learn to dance to the best of their ability. More than anything, she wants to be there for them and “love on them”! When she enters the classroom, it’s all about them…not about her.
Jenna has been married to her husband, Noah, for five and a half years. They have three adorable children. Cambrie, age 4, Lincoln, age 2, and Jax, 4 months old. They attend Woodstock City Church in Woodstock, GA.
A Note From “Miss” Jenna: “I absolutely love teaching at Impact Dance of Atlanta. It’s more than just a studio, it’s my home and they are my family.”
