Miss Jennifer has vast training in Classical dance technique and we feel privileged that she has chosen to share her knowledge with Decipher Dance. 

Jennifer studied the Diploma of Dance Teaching and Management at Boxhill also and has a great understanding of safe dance practice principles, anatomy and correct dance technique. 

Jennifer has taught with Decipher Dance for 3 Years and we are super excited to have her on board to impart her classical technique with our students. Her kind and gentle nature ensures that each student feels welcome and safe in her class. Swaying from the traditional forms of classical teaching Jennifer likes to mix it up a bit and offer classes to modern music that not only engages the students more but also offers for exciting and innovative choreography. Jennifer cannot wait to share her love of dance, especially classical, with the new ballerinas at Decipher Dance.
