Transformation Tuesday: Jennifer Listerman
#TransformationTuesdaySW Our Transformation Tuesday dance features the future star of Broadway, Jennifer Listerman! Jennifer has been studying with SkunkWorks Dance Founder, Jana Bennett, for over four years and recently was accepted into the prestigious University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) Summer Program! Hear the story of how dance has transformed her life:
"Dance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was in a ballet-tap combo class when I was 4, I instantly fell in love with performing. I love being able to leave all of my worries behind and fully immerse myself in the music and the story.
Dance has helped me get through some of the hardest times in my life. If I ever felt alone or anxious, I could head to the studio and immediately feel better.
Dance has helped me grow as an artist and a person; I would not be who I am today without dance. It has been like a home and a family. It has taught me discipline, how to work with others, and it has given me a strong work ethic. I am excited to see what adventure it takes me on next.”
More information on SkunkWorks Dance classes (including pre-professional training in musical theater dance!) will be coming out soon on our website and social media pages. Stay tuned!
