Jes has been teaching dance with Julie Keller, owner of Belladance, for over 10 years. She teaches ballet, tap, lyrical, jazz, and tumbling. She is a graduate of Northern Kentucky University and a financial analyst. She also is the choreographer for the theatre company, InBocca Perfomance.
Jes started dancing when she was 15 years old. Julie Keller made it possible for Jes to start such an amazing journey at such a late stage. Julie would pick her and another girl up from school and drive them out to dance class each week. Who knew being cut from high school volleyball would bring her into such an amazing dance family. Jes choreographed the following shows for InBocca Performance: Maid of New Orleans (2012), Romeo y Margarita (2013), Cygnet (2013), Redcap (2014), Cygnet (2015), Odyssey (2015), and Southern Gothic (2016).
Jes says, “I can truly say Julie has been an amazing mentor in dance and life. I can pin point one conversation that truly changed my outlook on life. She told me to stop waiting and live for the blessings I have in my life now. I am very blessed to be a part of the Belladance family.”
