DACO virtual DANCE WORKSHOPS FOR KIDS & TEENS: Summer SESSION
Dance is ALWAYS the answer! Moving your bodies in rhythm is a great physical activity. Dance improves flexibility, coordination, balance, range of motion, stamina, muscle tone, strength, and posture. But physical fitness is just one of many benefits of dance. Students learn to follow directions, learn and remember steps (choreography), respond to music, develop teamwork and build confidence.
Lace-up those sneakers or dance shoes and experience the fun of dance! Let's Groove!

Jennifer Miller Combs has been involved in the performing arts for over 35 years. Growing up, she was a two-time US National Champion Highland dancer and also participated in several other forms of dance, musical theater, and cheer.
As her love of dance grew, she dreamed of turning her dancing into a career. She furthered her dance training in
college and earned her bachelor’s degree in performing arts with a specialization in dance from Oakland University. While she was a student there, she was a member of the OU Repertory Dance Company, Oakland Dance Theater, the OU Dance Team, and was also the recipient of the Jakob Decker Dance Award for outstanding performance as a
dance major. She has danced professionally with the Patterson Rythm Pace Dance Company and with the Celtic Dance Theater of Arizona as a soloist in their touring production of “Fire & Grace”.
Jennifer has been teaching dance for over 25 years. She has had her own successful Highland Dance studio for 13 years. Her students have competed and performed all over the world, winning many awards along the way, including three US National Championships. Most recently, four of her students were selected to perform in the prestigious
“Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo”, a show that takes place at Edinburgh Castle in Scotland and runs during the entire month of August.
In addition to Highland Dance, she also teaches ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, and tap. She has been a resident instructor at the Ohio Scottish Arts School at Oberlin College for the past 8 years. She has also been a guest instructor for the British Association of Teachers of Dancing’s North American Conference for the past few years. Jennifer is
an adjudicator for the International Thespian Society as well as a presenter at the Michigan Educational Theater Association State Festival each December.
