Owner & Artistic Director
Jen began her dance training at the age of four at the Judyth Parks Academy of Dance Arts in Wallingford, CT. Dance quickly became an integral part of her life, and by high school she aspired to one day open her own studio. In 2008, Jen earned a BBA in Business Management from the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She also completed extensive studies in ballet, modern, and jazz technique, ballet history, and dance pedagogy through the University’s Dance Department. In 2007, while finishing her undergraduate degree, Jen began teaching dance on a part-time basis. Upon graduation, she began a career in business development and marketing while continuing to teach in the evenings. Over the next eight years she became an esteemed teacher and choreographer, specializing in ballet, pointe, and contemporary. Jen is thrilled to take her passion for dance, love of teaching, and experience in business and create En L’air Studio of Dance.
