Jessica is a proud founding member of Dance Makers Collective’s (DMC) youth company Future Makers, who are a group of motivated and enthused emerging independent dance artists in Sydney. Jessica’s professional contemporary debut was with DMC performing The Rivoli (2020) in the Sydney Festival, which paid tribute to the culturally diverse social dance histories of ‘The Riv’. Since, Jessica has worked collaboratively with Nadia Odlum in Correspondence (2020) to create a site-specific work at the Art Gallery of NSW, which used bodies to explore and interpret the Kaldor Public Art Projects achieves in new and experimental ways. More recently, Jessica collaborated with Julie-Anne Long to perform a site-specific solo in In Situ (2021), in the Sydney Festival, which responded to the rich stories and landscapes of Parramatta Park.

Jessica is passionate about facilitating authentic, transformational experiences for audience members and is grateful to share the gift of movement and storytelling.
