Jess began her training in Broadway tap and Musical Theatre, but later fell in love with Hip Hop and Commercial styles, performing and competing throughout Ireland. After receiving her BSc in Neuroscience from University College Dublin, she went on to complete her Diploma in Professional Dance from The College of Dance, Dublin. It was here she grew her love for Jazz, Ballet and Contemporary.
Jessica has danced with BPS Dance and Why Not Dance Company, and performs at several Christmas and New Year’s events with Dublin City Council and Fáilte Ireland. Jess was an ensemble member and featured dancer in Sean Gilligan’s production of ‘Annie the Musical’ in The Helix theatre Dublin 2017, and danced in Viko Nikci’s Irish film ‘Cellar Door’ 2017. Most recently, Jess was assistant choreographer and dancer for the Irish leg of Rebecca O’Connor’s ‘Simply the Best Tour’.
As a former student herself, Jess is looking forward to another year teaching all of the amazing students at NPAS.
