Learn new forms of dance with a well-travelled dancer.
I have taught and choreographed professionally for almost 8 years, and started dancing 21 years ago. I am passionate about teaching the technique to dancing, but also how to move their body with style. I have trained and worked with some of the top choreographers in LA and have a large amount of experience in the dance industry. I can teach jazz, technique, hip hop, jazz funk, lyrical, and contemporary. I love to help kids and adults build their confidence, brand themselves as dancers, and give them top training with the years of knowledge I have.
About Jordan J.

I was a professional dancer for 5 years in Los Angeles and am based out of Southern CA. I have worked with some of the top choreographers in Los Angeles such as: Travis Wall, Jojo Gomez, Andre Fuentes, Steve Ewing, D-Trix, Megan Batoon, etc. Along with dancing, I have taught dancers all over the world and own my 2 businesses, More Than Motion Dance and Movement Collective. I love teaching adults, but specialize in working with competition and recreational kids/teen dancers. My styles of expertise include: jazz, contemporary, lyrical, jazz funk, hip hop, and technique (leaps, turns, leg extensions, flexibility, and strength and conditioning. If you're looking for in person strength, conditioning, or flexibility lessons I have an outdoor gym in my complex where we can use weights and all their equipment for free (added bonus!) Coming from the dance scene in Los Angeles, I love to teach dancers how to brand themselves to potentially book jobs and make connections in the dance world. I take the relationships I make with the kids, the parents, and adults very seriously, and am very communicative! I build strong relationships with my students and the families, and love to be a mentor and someone they can rely on. Whether you are new to dance, or you've been dancing for years, we will get along great and have fun! I promise you will walk away learning something new.
