SALOMON_JESSICA_7Jessica Salomon a recent graduate from New York University, where she studied arts education and storytelling through movement. As a dancer with a focus in Broadway jazz, contemporary, and post-modern techniques, she has trained at prestigious New York City cultural institutions like Gibney Dance, Movement Research, Steps on Broadway, and Broadway Dance Center, and performed at venues such as the Citigroup Theater at Alvin Ailey, Culture Hub at La MaMa, The Jerry H. Labowitz Theater, and the Highline Ballroom. As a choreographer and director, she has had the privilege of directing NYU’s Dancers/Choreographer’s Alliance and served as a performing arts producer for NYC’s Gallatin Arts Festival, a seven-day interdisciplinary celebration of both visual and performing arts. She’s worked for MCC Theater, Playbill, and Danspace Project, in addition to spending her time in classrooms developing art and dance curriculum for Kidville, a nationally franchised early childhood enrichment center. When she is not dancing, she spends her time teaching a wonderful group of bilingual students in HISD. As an alumna of In-Step Dance, she is thrilled to be back teaching in a community that gave her so much.
