 Jessie has been salsa dancing since August of 2004. She began her dancing career under the instruction of Joseph Snowhawk, Denver, Colorado, and Eric Freeman, Boulder, CO. Midway through 2004 she began assisting Joseph with his classes. From 2005 – 2013 she assisted Eric Freeman with his group classes. Around 2007 Jessie was invited to teach the beginner class at Avalon Ballroom in Boulder.

In addition to her teaching career, Jessie is a vibrant dancer. In 2011 she performed with Salsako Dance Company, in 2013 she performed with the acclaimed salsa dancer Diana Sanchez. Jessie is well-versed in a variety of salsa styles including LA style, Cuban style, Timba, Son, Cumbia, and New York style. In terms of Latin dance styles, she dances the Cha-cha, Merengue, Bachata, and Regeaton. Her preferred dances are LA and Cuban style (which includes Timba, Son Boleros and Regeaton).

Throughout Jessie’s college career, she took many dance classes that influenced her salsa style and teaching. She studied African Dance, Contact Improvisation, Modern Dance, Afro-Cuban with Neri Torres of Cuba, Ballet, Jazz Choreography, and Yoga.
