Raised here in Ft. Lewis, Washington, Jennifer moved to Seattle to study graphic design and has been working as a graphic designer and artist in recent years. Attracted to all things creative, she found her way to some of the hottest hip-hop dance classes in the state, and began studying at Westlake Dance Center and performing with Kari-Lee’s In-Effect in the 90’s & early 2000s.
While she’s always had a gift for dance, she did not start training till her mid-20s. Learning choreography was always a challenge for her, but she was so inspired by hip hop dancing in the 90’s, that she worked hard to train in the craft, and worked her way from the back of the room to being a leader on the Seattle Dance Fitness scene since she began teaching.
Jennifer has lived in Washington nearly her whole life, minus a few years abroad and one year in her birth state, Texas.
She travelled quite a bit from 2016-2020 and is now focused on taking DancePowered to the next level.
Jennifer brings unique style to her classes. She quickly moved from teaching Zumba to creating DancePowered in 2014, her signature dance fitness class and has been choreographing her own routines since 2011. Jennifer is known for her creative choreography, mixing dance and music genres and taking dance fitness to the next level with nuance and plenty of challenges for all levels who take.
Jennifer also works at Community Fitness as their Art Director and Social Media Director.
