Teacher: Jess Prentice
Hi, I’m Jess. I’m a second year Hispanic Studies and French Student and this year’s commercial teacher. I started dancing at a young age, doing Ballet, Tap and Modern until I was 12. However, I then stopped to pursue gymnastics more seriously. A few years ago I rediscovered my love for dance, when I began taking Commercial, Contemporary and Modern classes, as well as completing my ISTD Intermediate Modern exam. Since joining CMD my passion for dance has only grown and I’ve loved attending classes, working towards shows and competing in the Advanced Jazz and Intermediate Contemporary competition teams. I’m really excited to teach Commercial this year as it’s a style that I really enjoy and I want my class to be all about having fun. I hope to work on really using the music to accentuate movements as well as exploring a range of styles within the commercial category so that my classes are varied and challenging. Can’t wait to meet you all next year!
