Developing her penchant for dancing at early age, Jennifer Mitchell comes from a family lineage who actively danced. By the time she reached adulthood and met fellow dance aficionado Julia Crabtree, the two were able to make their long-awaited passion of getting back into dance a reality by joining forces as codirectors of Jsquared Dance Company. The two opened their studio to offer a full slate of classes for both adults and children. Their dance curriculum—aimed for students of all ages—covers such popular styles as tap, hip hop, ballet, and jazz. For those aged 18 and older, the graduate program welcomes clients to study the same styles and perform as part of a competitive dance team. Even Jsquared’s fitness classes draw their influence from dance classes; styles include Latin-style Zumba, and ballet-barre conditioning.
