    Jacquelyn Nowicki originates from Chicago, Illinois. She received her BFA in Dance from Western Michigan University, where she graduated summa cum laude and was named Presidential Scholar in April 2008. She has performed works by Robert Battle, Lou Conte, Helen Tamiris, George Faison and Doug Varone, among others. Jacquelyn currently dances for Pilobolus Dance Theater in their PCS company and has performed for them all over the world including Abu Dhabi, Germany, Italy, and Mexico, and she is certified to teach for their Educational Outreach Program. Her professional credits also include working for Mike Esperanza's BARE Dance Company, Calen Kurka's :pushing progress, and Marlena Wolfe's The Wolfe Project. Jacquelyn worked as a part-time faculty member at Western Michigan University's Department of Dance where she still frequents as a guest teacher and choreographer, and she currently teaches all over the New York dance scene including being on faculty at Peridance Capezio Center, and guesting at Steps on Broadway, and Broadway Dance Center. Her athletic, daring, and unique approach to movement has also landed her numerous master classes and conventions throughout the United States and internationally in Rome, Italy. Most recently Jacquelyn started her own New York City based dance company, NOW Dance Project, and will be premiering her work in festivals and showcases in the months to come. In addition to dancing, teaching, and choreographing Jacquelyn is a nationally certified Personal Trainer.

    Class Description

    Jacquelyn's class challenges each dancer to approach their movement with sensitivity and awareness. Her warm-up invigorates the body through alignment exercises, stability and strength training, and the use of weight shifting in order to prepare physically and mentally for center work. Through task oriented improv, Jacquelyn encourages the exploration and release of patterns of habit. Her movement phrases then push the dancer to confront their athleticism, develop a relationship with musical choices, and expand their artistry. Check out Jackie Nowicki on YouTube.
