Jennifer Hansen, RAD RTS, AAC1, CDTA Stage
Miss Jen started dancing at age 4 when her mom enrolled her. Her favourite dance memory would be listening to cassettes with my mom and stretching in our living room. Miss Jen loves dancing because it is physically challenging yet emotionally freeing. She’s excited to create some new choreography this season and see the dancers achieve things they didn’t think they were capable of. Miss Jen hopes to train confidence in dancers so they know “you can do it if you want to”. More about Miss Jen.... favourite colour is aqua blue. Favourite treat is probably chips. She likes cappuccino for her caffeine fix. FUN FACT: Miss Jen has been involved in dance for 34 continuous years!
