Dance Instructor:

Jennifer Olszewski “I began teaching pre-ballet classes in 1997 and have been doing such ever since. I studied ballet at the Joffrey ballet school in New York while I danced with Burklyn Ballet Theatre in Vermont. I received my BA in dance from the University of Washington in 2005. I love sharing my passion for dance with my students through imagination based games and the exploration of the elements of dance.”
