Miss Jen - Dance Instructor

Miss Jen started dancing at the age of four at Errington Ballet Theatre in London Ontario, where she caught the ‘ dance bug’ for ballet and tap. Growing up in a military family she lived in several cities across Canada, giving her the opportunity to learn from many different instructors in several other dance genres including jazz, Ukrainian, highland, Romanian, baton and acro.

Competition life started in 1973 and lasted for many years. Most of her summers were spent in summer dance schools and dancing in multicultural festivals and Highland Games in many provinces.

In 1984 she passed her teachers exam in tap from the Canadian Dance Teachers Association, her Elementary ballet exam from the Royal Academy of Dance, became a member of the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance and began her teaching career.

While taking a break from teaching to raise her busy family, she has been adjudicating competitions.

Miss Jen is excited to be putting on her tap shoes again and teaching as part of the Starbound team!
