In 2018, she was the recipient of the Diane Moore Creation Award. Jessica is the Co-Artistic Director of Nostos Collectives, where she focuses her time creating professional performance opportunities for emerging artists. Jess travelled to Germany in the summer of 2022 to participate in Flow Acrobatics - a course to form a deeper understanding of integrating new movement patterns which are based on fluidity, resilience and lightness and have their origin in capoeira and contemporary dance.

An experienced teacher, Jessica has worked and taught at several studios in HRM. Owning her own dance studio is something she always wanted to do, so opening Illusion Dance Arts has made her dreams come true!
