About Me

Sheena JeffersYou know the question, “What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten?” I know the answer, without doubt or hesitation: A dance lesson.

My mother, a teacher and arts supporter, took me to my first lesson when I was 5 years old, and opened my eyes to the fascinating, hard-working, creative and beautiful world of dance.

Born in Richmond, Virginia, and raised in Virginia Beach, my heart belongs to both cities. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with some of the most talented teachers, choreographers and dancers on the East Coast. Including:

  • Ann Catherine Cross School of Dance
  • Governor’s School for the Arts
  • Bobbi & Helen School of Dance
  • Denise Wall’s Dance Energy
  • New York City Dance Alliance
  • Virginia Musical Theatre Inc.
  • Richmond Ballet
  • Virginia Commonwealth University Dance Department

I graduated in 2008 from Virginia Commonwealth University, where I was a member of the VCU Gold Rush dance team. Currently, I am studying Dance Education at Old Dominion University and teaching at Central Virginia Dance Academy. I teach the following styles, to dancers of all levels and ages:

  • Jazz
  • Tap
  • Hip-Hop
  • Musical Theater
  • Improvisation
  • Contemporary
  • Lyrical

Dance has been the constant in my life, through ups and downs, surprises and the inevitable, dance has always been right there.

I once had a dance teacher say to me, “Once you discover you have a talent, you have the responsibility to train, perfect, and share that talent.” I’ll never forget that.
