interpretive dance, but funny.

(and with a message.)

My performance pieces are a mix of dance, comedy, and storytelling, on themes that range from bodies, menstruation, sexuality, dating, self-discovery, and reinvention.

“It was a joy watching you work. The future of a different [and healthier]  menstrual reality depends on innovations like yours….thank you!”

~ Chris Bobel, Associate Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, UMASS Boston

“That is show biz....inventive, hilarious, creative.”


~ Brent Buell, Producer/Director


current works:

  • "Hungry Ovaries" combines dance, comedy, science, and Jess’s dating life to illustrate the changing hormonal patterns of a woman’s menstrual cycle, and can be adapted for both schools and comedy clubs.

  • "Swan Canal" is a remake of the dying swan dance from Swan Lake, featuring a jaded ballerina who decides to create her own way through it - and remove the tutu-like constraints that have been holding her back.

  • “Dance Into Your Answers” is a live interpretive dance process that lets me take something you're challenged with - a break-up text or a tough transition you're experiencing - and create a dance on the spot to help ease the struggle and create some healing along with the entertainment.
