Jessica Kelly

Dance Instructor

Jessica Kellywas blessed to have trained locally as a young student in the Vaganova, Cecchetti and Balanchine methods. She fell in love with ballet at the age of 8 and was quick to pick it up. Jessica studied ballet, exclusively for 4 years but also became well versed in jazz and lyrical, as a successful competitive dancer and performer. Her summers were spent at ballet intensive programs such as Sarasota Ballet, Orlando Ballet and The Rock School for Dance Education, working diligently & striving for perfection. Jessica attended The Rock’s year-round, pre-professional level, ballet training program in Philadelphia for her 11th grade year on a scholarship. There were endless opportunities to perform, grow and refine her dancing with training five or six days a week. After graduation, I stumbled head over heels for the love of my life and we started our family. After a few auto accidents, my body needed physical therapy and ballet made the most sense for my recovery. Jessica is certified in Progressing Ballet Technique, an innovative program designed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in class. Jessica and her husband have two beautiful children. Sharing her passion & knowledge for ballet with the next generation & watching them flourish comes with great satisfaction and pride!
