Hello! I am Mrs. Kerry. I have been on staff at JCSD since 2011, teaching ballet, modern, jazz, and creative. I began training in ballet at the age of six at Hosanna Dance Studio in Eugene. I was also given the opportunity to study jazz, tap, modern, dance theater, hip hop, pointe, and ballroom, and dance leading roles in Adventure’s in Narnia and with the youth dance company, Hosanna Youth Performers (HYPe). I am now a part of the adult company, Dance Veritas.
I later trained at Lane Community College and the University of Oregon, where I received an associate of arts in psychology and a bachelor of science in dance, respectively. My love of dance has been nurtured by many with special recognition to Sarah Ebert, Margo Van Ummersen, Christian Cherry, Jennifer Knight Dills, and Tiese Morgan.
I have recently accepted a social service assistant position at Looking Glass. In my free time, I enjoy reading, coffee dates with friends, hiking, sipping tea, watching football (‘Sco Ducks!), cuddling with my cat, and dancing with my husband.
