Jenna is from Oklahoma City, where she began her ballet training at the Academy of Ballet and Theatre Arts at age four. After graduating from high school, Jenna moved to New York City to continue her ballet training for 2 years at SLK ballet. While studying in New York, she realized she needed something outside of dancing to help strengthen her core and elongate her muscles. She began to take private Pilates sessions with Carrie Kenneally, a well known Pilates instructor in the NYC dance world. Jenna saw that Pilates strengthened her ballet technique and transformed her body, creating long and lean muscles; it also greatly affected her daily posture and a healthy positive mindset. She joined the Alabama Ballet in 2014 where she is now beginning her third season. Jenna enjoys teaching and is currently a ballet instructor at Encore Performance Company and at the Alabama Ballet School. She recently received her certification through Peak Pilates and is very excited to begin teaching new clients, helping them to experience a transformation in their bodies through the strengthening power of Pilates.
