Immersed in the arts since her elementary days, Jesse has sought out inspiration and training through both contemporary and alternative avenues. Jesse has competed and performed in the dance genres of hip-hop, lyrical, modern and jazz and continuously seeks out opportunities to vibe in Chicago’s underground house dance scene.
Jesse has performed with La Rumba Cuban Dance Company in AB, Canada, Viva Dance Studio in Cleveland, OH & with Reynaldo Sanchez’ Semi-pro Mambo team in Chicago, IL.
Trained by world-renowned dance instructor and choreographer Juan Calderon, Jesse creates a friendly and encouraging environment, giving students both the tools they need to feel good about their own progress and the inspiration to explore as artists themselves.
Community social worker by day, Jesse displays committed foresight into the development of Chicago’s social dance scene and can be found at Vintage Lounge zouking most every Sunday. When not dancing in the scene, Jesse has been referenced a Burning Man veteran and looks to the power of the collective for most of life’s existential questions.
