If I'm not dancing I can be found...

...baking! I love spending time with my little girl and boy and my husband, Tim! I also love skydiving, rabbits, Harry Potter and Disney.

My favourite band/artist is...

...Muse! But also Adele, Kelly Clarkson, The Fray, Billie Eilish and Ed Sheeran.

My most memorable dance routine is...

...Janet Jackson, IF! The first time I ever danced at Sadler’s Wells Theatre and there was a moment where I knew I wanted to dance for the rest of my life!

Jenn started dancing at the age of 11 proving it’s never too late to start dance! She started in freestyle competitions and the IDTA examination syllabus and never looked back.
At college she fell in love with Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey and Matthew Bourne. Her thirst for knowledge grew and took her to De Montfort University where she earned her 1st class honours degree in dance. During this time she also worked towards her IDTA qualifications in freestyle, cheerleading and modern jazz. Jenn is qualified to deliver both the NATD Contemporary Dance Syllabus and the ISTD Advanced Contemporary Dance syllabus meaning that all her contemporary classes are full of knowledge and passion.
Along with Principal Toni, Jenn also has her BCA and BCQ qualifications in cheerleading – and her favourite thing is to STUNT! Jenn is proud to have been a founder (with Toni!) of the first Solihull cheer squad qualified in stunt, to have sent hundreds of contemporary dancers to the West End and to have trained generations of dancers from tiny little dots all the way through to adults.
Her favourite thing is to inspire children to be the best version of themselves – everyone is welcome in Jenn’s dance classes!
