Your Dance Teacher

Jill Breckenridge is new to the San Francisco Bay Area, originally from Boston MA. Jill received her BFA in Modern Dance from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia PA and began her journey west. In that time she has danced professionally in Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Portland, and San Diego. Some of her work includes being a showgirl in Jubilee!, a hair model/dancer for L’Oreal Professional, a ballroom dance competitor, as well a dancer for San Diego Dance Theater. Her passion is to learn as many styles of dance as possible so she can share the many benefits, the diverse world of dance can offer.

Teaching her first dance class when she was 18, Jill has almost ten years of teaching experience. In those years she has taught all ages from 8-98 and a variety of styles including ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, tap, salsa, swing, hustle, foxtrot, tango, waltz, rumba, and cha cha. She has choreographed first dances, father daughter dances, solo routines, duets, flash mobs, and group numbers. Her favorite thing about choreographing is being able to add personal touches and choosing movement based on the individual(s), customizing the dance to the dancer(s).

In addition to teaching private lessons Jill has many years of teaching group classes . This could be a great way to team build at buisness events, or just a fun addition to any party. It is no secret that partner dancing has changed over the years, but it is still a great skill to bring to any gala, charity event or even for networking.

Jill wanted to create Breckenridge Dance to share her passion and the positive effects dance can have on everyone. A side from the fact that dance is fun, she has witnessed dance help people with Parkinson’s, build confidence, increase weight loss, and bring couples together.
