TWDCC Teaching Artist Highlight
Jenny Bennett

Jenny Bennett joins TWDCC!

IMG_1539Jenny Bennett has had a love for ballet her whole life! She started dancing at 2 years old and never stopped.  She grew up in Southern California and started her early training until the age of 14 with Joanna Santor where she found the joy of ballet.  From there she went on to study under full scholarship with Patrick Frantz, former premier dancer of the Paris Opera Ballet.  At the same time she was asked to study with Stanley Holden.  During the summers she studied at Virginia School of the Arts, Los Angeles Classical Ballet, and the Westside School of Ballet.  She also danced professionally for Pasadena Dance Theater under the direction of Cynthia Young.  She continues her training now under Rebecca Blair and is also certified in Progressing Ballet Technique. She enjoys being mom to her two kids Ruby and Kale, surfing and working with youth in a local non-profit. And now she is excited to pass on the gift of ballet with students and see the joy that comes from dance as they are growing in their skill.IMG_0948

“I am so excited to join the The Tannery this fall as a teacher! I absolutely love ballet and can’t wait to pass on that love to others.  I believe classical training paired with the joy of dance can be a powerful foundation for inspiring dancers.  Ballet is an art steeped in hundreds of years of tradition.  I hope to make that history  accessible to the young dancer today in a fun and encouraging environment as they step up to the challenge of growing in their ballet technique.  I can’t wait to meet you!”
