Jeni Kemper graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2005 with a BFA in Dance. Her early training in ballet, jazz, modern and tap came from several studios in Colorado Springs, CO. She has had the opportunity to work with Mia Michaels, Debbie Allen, Bill Hastings, Sherry Zunker and several other world-renown choreographers. Jeni received a full scholarship to Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago, as well as the opportunity to study intensively with River North Dance Company. Upon graduating, Jeni worked for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line as a dancer and dance captain in the production shows. She has choreographed for the Colorado Children’s Theatre Productions, D-11 Productions and many more rewarding experiences. Jeni has been a mentor and instructor to many students throughout the U.S. and enjoys sharing her love for the performing arts. She has received many Top Choreography Awards at numerous dance competitions. Many of her students have received scholarships and top awards throughout the US. Jeni Kemper’s main focuses for the studio is help students with either their career as a dancer or help them realize they are able to stay in the dance world but not have to be a dancer (i.e. PT, Agents etc.) Jeni was never directed in the right direction while she was growing up and only thought dance as a hobby. When she was accepted to the University of Arizona it opened her eyes that dance is not just a hobby. All the hard work and money Jeni’s parents put into dance can be well spent. Jeni wants to help her students realize these things. Plus with the many connections she has, Jeni can help her students make great connections while they are still trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. Her greatest pride is seeing her students grow and getting into a college or seeing them push for something they really believe in.
