Dorothy Adams is from Montgomery County, here she grew up watching her sister dance. From this she fell in love with ballet. Dance was her way to express her feelings. At the young age of nine she began ballet at the Montgomery County Ballet Company and years later she majored in dance at the University of Maryland. Along with ballet she does jazz and modern.

She has been teaching for over 25 years in Howard County and loves to interact with all her students of different ages and backgrounds in order to expose them to the wonders and joys of dance. Their most important lesson taught in her lesson according to her is that anything can be accomplished with hard work and effort.

Along with being a dance teacher she also teaches at a local Elementary School and previously in Baltimore County where she wrote dance curriculum. She loves volunteering after school, as well as swimming.

Thank you Mrs. Adams!

Jessica is from Hereford, Maryland. She studied dance at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She was an dance major. She also studied dance at the MGM dance studio in PA. Jessica started dancing when she was four years old. She liked it much better than any sports that she tried so she decided to stick with dance.

Her favorite part of dance is helping students make a big break through with their technique and “helping them figure out how to do something that was difficult for them before”. So that’s a very valuable lesson she likes to instill in her students is to keep working hard at something even when it seems impossible.

When she has free time she likes to watch videos of modern and dance performances. Along with that, she enjoys taking her children to the Robinson Nature Center located in Howard County.

Her favorite style of dance is ballet and modern and her favorite position are tilts which is a popular modern dance move.

Ms. Jessica is a dancer of Misako Ballet Company. Come to see Misako Ballet Company 10th anniversary performance "Perspective" on Feb. 19th at Jim Rouse Theatre!
