Although dance has been a part of Jenny's life since she was young, it was when she discovered the beauty and grace of Middle Eastern Dance that she knew she found her calling. While teaching for over twenty years, her class instruction revolves primarily around her knowledge of Egyptian dance, yet includes instruction in many diverse styles such as: Turkish, Romany, Folkloric, Cabaret, and Bollywood and it includes the use of canes, swords, veils and finger cymbals. Her Masters Degree in Counseling, Certification as a Yoga instructor along with additional training in Authentic Movement and Body Centered Psychotherapy has enhanced her understanding of movement in the body, and given insight into women and how to support their needs for personal growth. It has also helped her create a nurturing and stimulating class environment. Based in Chicago for over 15 years she has had the pleasure of being director of Troupe Namaste and Namaste Roses, leading a sisterhood of wonderful women who have worked together to perform in many successful shows. She plans to continue her career in dance and yoga on this restorative, satisfying and energizing path, and invites you to join her!
