Jessica Matthews Austin

Title: Faculty

Jessica has been a part of the HAD family since she was 6 years old. She participated in the Cecchetti exam program up to Grade 6, and hopes to complete her Cecchetti Teaching Certificate 1A in the future. She was a member of Ballet Etudes Company throughout her teen years. She was also a demonstrator for various HAD summer camps during this time, which gave her the opportunity to learn how to teach. Away from the dance world, Jessica is completing her Bachelor of Science in Marriage and Family
Studies, and hopes to use what she learns to help other families. She loves spending time at home with her husband and two little ones, but is grateful for the opportunity to bless others and improve her learning through teaching dance. Jessica now teaches ballet and musical theater at the studio, and loves the opportunity to watch her students perform and help them grow.
