Jennifer Dancy – Director
Ms. Jen has been teaching dance locally for over 30 years. As a studio owner, she strives to bring a high level of professionalism and technical education to her students and the Upper Perkiomen Valley. She has had students accepted into many prestigious summer programs like Joffrey, ABT, Rock school, and Alvin Ailey to name a few. Jen has had numerous students attend the Performing Arts Hs in Bethlehem. She teaches all styles of dance but with an emphasis on ballet. Ms. Jen strongly believes the foundation of dance is with ballet, strong technique, performance, and terminology. In addition to running the studio, she teaches dance in the community by choreographing Upper Perkiomen High School’s annual musical.
Ms. Breanna - Artistic director
Breanna teaches Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, and Tap. She earned her B.F.A. in Dance from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. Before coming to Shenandoah, she attended the Lehigh Valley Charter high school for the Performing Arts, in Bethlehem, PA.
Throughout high school, I performed with a youth dance company, Music, and Motion. With this company, I was fortunate enough to be allowed to perform all over Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia. I reached audiences such as U.S. Senators, children of all ages, and was able to bring art to life in different museums.
I performed with a pre-professional ballet company for two years, New Horizons Dance Alliance, where I was able to perform in The Nutcracker and Dracula.
Ms. Jackie - Tumble director
Ms. Jackie has brought amazing energy and talent to our studio. Her level of coaching has pushed our students to go to the next level. She brings strong technical coaching to our students and above all things believes each student needs to advance at their own pace. Jackie has had no major injuries because her students do not do tricks by "throwing" or "chucking". All her students have a tear of fundamentals they must attain before moving on to the next level. Jackie does not believe in holding a student back and will move any students when they excel to the next level. Ms. Jackie has been a substantial addition to our family. Ms. Jackie has been coaching gymnastics and all-star cheer for 15+ years while also a real estate agent for her other job. Jackie is married and has 2 girls.

Ms. Chelsea - tumble instructor
I am so happy to announce I’ll be added to the coaching staff at Studios On Main!
I am 23 years old, newly married and have a puppy named Appa who’s like a four legged child to me.
I’ve enjoyed coaching at Stallone Gymnastics where I finished out my competitive career as a gymnast. I did gymnastics for 14 years, 9 of those were competitive and I have been tumbling since I was a toddler.
Gymnastics has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, it drew me to study kinesiology and anatomy and I now have a career I love as a Licensed Massage Therapist. It brings me such joy helping my clients learn about their bodies and helping to relieve aches and pains. I love helping athletes experience more control of their body and achieve or improve on a tumble skill!
I can’t wait to get to know you and share an exciting year of improvement and growth!

Every year we choose a student who wishes to train in dance education and/or education. They train under the director and acts as an assistant many hours a week to learn to execute a dance class. This training includes involvement in syllabus, costumes, music, and routines. This student will also be a substitute for staff when needed and has the ability to run classes independently without a teacher in the class. This is a paid process and taken very seriously at our facility. WE are very happy to have our Dancer of The Year recipient chosen as the Teacher-in-training program this year.
