Jenna’s personal goal as a teacher is to see her students grow not only as dancers, but as individuals. She desires to teach them to dance from their heart, to follow their passion, and to have fun in class! 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.
