Jennifer McGowan, Director...

Jennifer has danced since her early childhood years with extensive training in Classical Ballet as well as Jazz and Tap. She began teaching at the age of 14 and then went on to further her studies at Skidmore college where she received her B.S. degree in Dance, with a minor in Early Childhood Education. At Skidmore she studied many forms of dance including Creative Dance, Character Dance, Bharata Natyam (Classical Indian Dance), Tap, Modern, Jazz, Ballet, Music and Acting for Dancers, Choreography, and Improvisation with an emphasis on teaching dance.

Jennifer has attended seminars at the Dance Institute for Teachers in Seattle, WA, and the Nutmeg Ballet Teachers’ Program in Torrington, CT, and has participated in numerous dance workshops. She recently attended a Little Dancing Yogis™ Teacher Training and is certified to teach Creative Kids Yoga® for children ages 2-12. She is a member of the National Dance Association, Dance and the Child International, and the International Association for Creative Dance.

As a teacher, Jennifer creates a safe environment for students to be themselves while challenging them to discover their full potential. By encouraging students to work together and learn from one another, she fosters mutual respect and a strong sense of community.

Jennifer started the Creative Dance Center in 1995 to share her love of dance with the community. She has been sharing her knowledge and love of dance with children for over twenty five years. When she is not dancing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children.
