Jaime has been actively engaged in dance/movement and performance arts since she could balance on one leg! Her studies centered in Arizona—where she received classical dance training in ballet, jazz, tap & character with a special emphasis on contemporary & lyrical. She performed at various competitions, showcases, and concerts—some even extending overseas, including pre-Olympic cultural tours in Greece and China and an international showcase in the Bahamas. She has worked with diverse students and centers across AZ, OR, CO, WA, Haiti & Nepal. Beyond teaching technique and creating competitive pieces—Jaime seeks to encourage students to express creativity through dance and embody the transformative process of learning-to-performing choreography.
