About the Artist

Jessica earned her BFA from The Ohio State University Department of Dance and has spent the last decade as an active member in the Columbus modern dance community as a dancer, teacher, choreographer, committee member and wellness facilitator.  In 2007 she started her dance company, TUPACO Dance, in affiliation with her wellness class, TUPACO, a movement based practice that integrates core work, Yoga, dance, movement fundamentals, breathing, meditation and visualization, (www.tupaco.com).  Jessica also specializes in stilt dancing and mime. She believes that dance arts benefit people of all ages and abilities by bringing artistry, healing, enrichment and a sense of well being to multiple aspects of their lives.  She is currently seeking a graduate degree in clinical counseling and is excited to celebrate our beautiful city through the lens of dance.
