Workshop Description

Jessica’s love of jazz, ballet, and street jazz creates a unique blend of contemporary movement that allows dancers to play with connection and expression. She aims to invite dancers to dig within themselves to discover their own artistic voice using honesty and vulnerability. A focus of musicality, texture, connection, and intention allows the dancer to play with the way the movement is experienced, seen, and felt by both the performer and the observer. Dance is more than executing moves. Dance is a feeling, an expression, storytelling, and individual artistry. Jessica creates a unique blend of movement to allow dancers to play with connection and expression. She aims to invite dancers to dig within themselves to discover their own artistic voice using honesty, vulnerability, and confidence. Utilizing the momentary connection through Zoom allows the dancer to discover and nurture their relationship to dance expression as it is portrayed on film cultivating a connection to the camera, to expand their energy and movement to be felt through a screen, and to connect deeply to themselves as they express and perform.

Jessica Franco received her training in New York City while earning her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Marymount Manhattan College. She has traveled around the world and the states to perform on The Honeymoon World Tour, several award shows such as the Billboard Music Awards and the MTV VMA’s, and music festivals like Coachella. She can be seen in music videos by Vance Joy and Fancy Hagood, and she is featured in Tezoro’s Floorwork Instructional DVD Volume’s I and II. Jessica was the Assistant Choreographer for Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman World Tour, and her work as an assistant choreographer can be seen in Ariana’s performances on The Voice, Jimmy Kimmel, American Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, Dance With The Stars, and more. She loves dance, connection, and storytelling, and she is so excited to continue working, creating, and performing all over the world!
