Jessica Rönn was three years old when her mom put her in the first ballet class and since then her interest for dance has continued to develop through the years. When she was seven years old she started to dance jazz ballet and at the age of ten her interest for hip hop grew strong. Later on she also raised interest for other styles like African dance, dancehall and contemporary.

Jessica has many years of experience in the learning of dance, but she has also been very observant when it comes to the many different teaching techniques. This has given her the opportunity to substitute for her teachers, which led to several jobs as a dance teacher.

In August 2012 Jessica started at Hotstepper one year hip hop and urban dance education, Copenhagen, which she finished June 2013. This, in order to develop further, and also to really understand the foundations and get the knowledge of her lifelong passion.

Jessicas dance portfolio consists of foundations in jazz and all styles of hip hop, and her latest focus has been on dancehall and african dance. She has now been teaching for over seven years, primarily hip hop and dancehall, to a wide range of ages. As a teacher, she has been recognized and appreciated for her good teaching skills, positive energy, dedication to her classes and unique sense of creativity.
