Jessica Opheim

Jessica began her journey with dance at three years old. This instantly became one of her major passions and she never looked back. She danced competitively at Dance in Motion until she graduated in 2012. She has trained in a variety of styles including: jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, musical theater, lyrical and contemporary. She looks back on these memories very fondly, and she is appreciative to have grown up in such a supportive community.

After graduating Jessica attended the University of the Fraser Valley in which she completed her Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Psychology. While completing her degree Jessica taught at dance at various studios in Abbotsford. She enjoyed spreading her love of dance with her students. She believes in building teamwork and strives to build the individual confidence of each student. She has also taken opportunities to perform locally at events including the Crystal Gala and the Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards. She loves seeing dancers share their talent with their local community.

This past year Jessica has completed her Bachelor of Education at the University of the Fraser Valley. She is now a teacher with the Abbotsford School District. She is committed to creating a kind and caring space for all children to thrive.

Jessica is excited to have another opportunity to share her love of dance. She is ready to be part of building a legacy!
