Jessikah loves teaching and has studied with many amazing belly dance professionals. It is her goal to make dancing fun, social and great exercise with a sense of community. Jessikah breaks down the moves for beginners, and also works on technique and drills for intermediate dancers, building on these skills to make everyone comfortable and to have an enjoyable time. She teaches through American/Egyptian Cabaret choreography so that it is easier to remember moves and how they can blend together into a dance, which can be performed for friends and family. Jessikah's in-person classes are temporarily not running due to Coronavirus. Watch her social media for updates and online classes, or you may support Jessikah's belly dance ventures, including online Zoom classes via Patreon.
