CLASS DESCRIPTION: The structure of my class has a lot to do with feeling/intention or, if you will, artistry. I choose not to have my class revolve around simply teaching the students steps, but instead I focus my energy on studying each dancer through the steps, so that I can encourage them to reach new depths in their performance. I love seeing new sides to dancers and take pride in being able to make them feel comfortable enough to share those special, unique moments with me. It’s a priority for me to inspire my students to push themselves, no matter what style I am teaching.

BIO: Originally from Toronto, Canada, Jordan knew she wanted to become a performer when she was eight years old. She started training in dance at the age of 5 in various styles such as Tap, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Jazz and Acro, and was assisting teachers by the age of 12. As Jordan continued to train she really found a love for not only dancing but choreography and teaching. Shortly after winning the title of “Canada’s Favourite Dancer” on So You Think You Can Dance Canada, Jordan immersed herself in acting classes and singing lessons. Her studies quickly paid off when she landed a starring role on the hit television series “The Next Step.” Not only did she land a role on this fabulous series but she was also given the chance to explore choreographing for Television. Constantly wanting to explore all areas of performance, Jordan has also appeared on stage in two Christmas Pantomimes at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto. Jordan then reprised the role of “Giselle” on one of Family Channel’s series “Lost & Found Music Studios,” a spin-off of “The Next Step,” which premiered in January of 2016 and is distributed worldwide by Netflix. In February of 2016, Jordan departed on The Next Step Wild Rhythm Tour, a live-on-stage production showcasing the amazing talents of The Next Step dancers. Along with performing in this popular tour, Jordan and co-star Trevor Tordjman had taken on the monumental task of choreographing and creative directing this exciting production, which was seen in Canada, the UK, Northern Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, New Zealand, and Australia. Since then, Jordan has no choreographed and creative directed three of The Next Step Tours and has just made the move to Los Angeles, California to pursue her dream of working in film and TV.
