East coast native Jessica Reis began her dance training at Kathryn Barnett School of Dance and New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble. While attending George Mason University to pursue a B.F.A. in Dance and Dance Education, she had the opportunity to perform the works of Doug Varone, David Parsons, Mark Morris, Robert Battle, and Kate Skarpatowska. After graduating college, Jessica moved to New York City where she performed with multiple contemporary dance companies. In addition to performing, she also taught dance at The School at Columbia and other local studios. In 2015, Jessica made the move to California with her husband and cat. She has had many wonderful opportunities performing and teaching all over the Bay Area, including dancing with Kaneisee Collective, ArcTangent and PERSpectives Dance Company. In addition to dance, Jessica is also a certified Pilates instructor at Center of Balance in Mountain View. She is passionate about helping her clients both in dance and everyday life learn how to become more mindful movers.
When Jessica isn't on the dance floor or in the Pilates studio, you can find her hiking with her husband and son, crocheting faux succulents because she can't seem to keep real ones alive, or enjoying a good cup of tea!
