Jessi Adrian found an interest in dance at an incredibly young age when her older sister took a
tap class, soon after Jessi was begging to start classes. Introduced first into Tap and following the
next year with Jazz, Jessi’s love of dance grew through the years. Continuing into Ballet,
Modern, Belly Dance, Hip Hop, African, and more. Her studies lead her through programs at
Jefferson High School’s Dance Magnet Program and into University of Oregon where she
completed a bachelor’s degree through the School of Music and Dance in 2009. Jessi’s love and
experience has given her many opportunities to teach others and share her love while she
continues to explore her connection to the art form. Finding the many applications and
possibilities movement in the body can bring to expanding her mind as well as those she is
privilege to share her interest with.
