Jessica McRoberts has had the pleasure of performing on Broadway, National Broadway Tours, and some of the finest Regional theaters in the country over the past 16 years. She has worked with some of the most brilliant people such as Tommy Tune, Chita Rivera, Gwen Verdon, Kathleen Marshall, Jerry Mitchell, David Marquez, Chet Walker, Noah Racey, Wayne Cilento, Matthew Warchus, David Leavau, and is currently studying with David Marquez and Craig Carnelia. She has had the privilege of seeing the business from both a dancers and a singers perspective is versatile in both these fields. Seeing the struggle at a singers movement callback, she helps singers to understand the dancers language. Because she is active in the business she can always offer up to date information to her students!
Jessica intuitively knows how to best help "singers who move" acquire skills and confidence. Her class is a genuinely safe space, which is challenging but not so out-of-reach that one becomes disenchanted. Instead, I felt encouraged and inspired by her, and by my own progress. She teaches solid technique without intimidation, but with the utmost care for her students, all while creating an environment of fun. She also understands the importance of authentic storytelling through movement, which is imperative in audition settings. Anyone who wants to actually enjoy their dance training should run to Jessica's class.

It's been years since I've been in a dance class. Jessica made me feel comfortable and welcome. I learn, I laugh, I have a great time at every class. Jessica is a dancer who really understands singers.
