Meet Miss Jillian
Jillian Greenberg " Miss Jillian"
Dance Educator and Early Childhood Expert
"I'm Miss Jillian, an early childhood dance teacher. With the limits of programs due to Covid-19, I wanted to create a small in-person class space to continue providing dance education and exploration for dancers and families!
I have studied dance education at the University of Hartford, graduating with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts with an emphasis on dance pedagogy. For the past seven years, I have focused all my energy on dance and its positive impact on childhood development. "
Move with Miss Jillian has been created not only to share the joy of movement with others, but to help build community, through dancing with our heart, body, and mind.
How do we dance with our heart, mind, and body?
By using the medium of dance, Move with Miss Jillian aims to create dancers whose hearts are compassionate, empathetic, joyful, and open; minds that are eager and ready to learn; and healthy, energetic bodies. Dancing itself can increase kinesthetic memory, grades, cooperation, and confidence. All classes have embedded elements of alignment, agility, cardio, balance, and core stabilization to help us live in our best body!
Move with Miss Jillian takes our core values to heart by making sure we are always putting our community first. 20% of all proceeds are donated back to local and national organizations that are helping others. We are also making sure that we are offering financial aid and hope to provide free dance classes to underserved communities in the near future. To learn more, visit our community page.
