2009 Winner

Jessica received the scholarship in 2009 at age 16. Having danced since the age of 4, Jessica has considerable experience in dance, and has continued to push herself to excel as much as she can. She has participated in numerous summer programs, including those with the Rock School at Pennsylvania Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and the Ballet Met.
