Jenna grew up in New Canaan, Connecticut where she began her formal ballet training at the New England Academy of Dance. After high school, she went over to the dark side and discovered modern dance, eventually leading her to earn a B.S. in Kinesiology-Dance at Indiana University. While attending IU, she had the opportunity to perform the works of Paul Taylor, Martha Graham, Anna Sokolow, Elizabeth Shea, Laura Poole, and Martha Wittman. After dancing with Thomas/Ortiz Dance in New York City, Jenna ventured to Boulder, Colorado in order to pursue her lifelong affection for writing and outdoor sports such as skiing, hiking, climbing, and biking. Joining AscenDance has brought her full-circle, and allows her to holistically engage a passion for creative and expressive movement.
