New to the San Francisco Bay Area, and originally from Boston MA. Jill received her BFA in Modern Dance from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia PA and began her journey west. In that time she has danced professionally in Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Portland, and San Diego. Some of her work includes being a showgirl in Jubilee!, a hair model/dancer for L’Oreal Professional, a ballroom dance competitor, as well a dancer for San Diego Dance Theater. Her passion is to learn as many styles of dance as possible so she can share the many benefits, the diverse world of dance can offer. Teaching her first dance class when she was 18, Jill has almost ten years of teaching experience. In those years she has taught all ages from 8-98 and a variety of styles including ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, tap, salsa, swing, hustle, foxtrot, tango, waltz, rumba, and cha cha. She has choreographed first dances, father daughter dances, solo routines, duets, flash mobs, and group numbers. Her favorite thing about choreographing is being able to add personal touches and choosing movement based on the individual(s), customizing the dance to the dancer(s).
