About Jacqueline: Jacqueline has loved dance from the time she could walk. Starting formal training at age 7, she actually never dreamed of becoming a professional dancer, but a dance teacher. Jacqueline believes that the joy, release, and comfort that dance offers should be shared. From making up dances in her living room in middle school to choreographing full musicals in college, it is no surprise that teaching and choreography are her favorite ways to engage with dance.
Jacqueline has trained with BalletMet (Columbus,OH), St.Louis Ballet (St.Louis, MO), and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre (Pittsburgh, PA). In high school, she was a member of the Springfield Ballet Company (Springfield, IL), a pre-professional dance company. She has performed in numerous productions in both the ballet and theatre world including Footloose, White Christmas, The Nutcracker, and Faerie Tale. Obtaining a minor in dance from the University of Pittsburgh, Jacqueline was the choreographer for many musicals including Into the Woods, Mamma Mia!, Merrily We Roll Along, and The Last Five Years. She also performed and choreographed for 3 different dance clubs throughout her college career.
Jacqueline is so excited to be sharing her love of dance with the folks at Art in Motion Pittsburgh!
