Hello, I’m Jackie and I have been with Dimensions Dance Center for 6 years now but if we’re counting the beginning it’s been a long time working a long side Ms. Tania. I have been a cheerleaders since I was 5 then went into dance with my cheerleading group at the age of 13. I then graduated high school and went onto college to study business and dance in 2013 and that’s when Ms. Tania took me under her wing and welcomed me into her dance studio. I have always worked with kids growing up and I love teaching.
