Jade’s passion for dance is highlighted through teaching and her ultimate goal is to teach her students to not only be strong in one aspect of dance, but to be versatile in all. Through Jade’s competitive dance journey, she has developed a special passion for tap dancing and strives to spread the love and respect of tap to all her students. She strongly believes dance is not about the prize at the end of the day, but the journey of what you learned along the way. Jade is very excited to share her joy of dance with her students at KICKS!
