Jordan has been teaching dance since her junior year of high school. Her heart and passion lie in the care for her students, and their development as dancers and human beings. Her love for teaching and choreographing led her to Durango, where she joined the Dance in the Rockies team in the summer of 2015. Jordan became the owner of Dance in the Rockies in the Summer of 2017. Since then, she has been a part of growing the studio into a thriving program, including expanding the studio to 2 locations with 13 competitive teams and many recreational class offerings.
