Jessikah is a life-long dancer, and has studied raks sharki, ballet, hula, jazz and tap. Dance is a big part of her life, from costuming, sewing, choreography, improvisation and staging. 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 Cabaret/Fusion choreography so that it is easier to remember moves and how they can blend together into a dance, which can be shared with friends and family.
