Currently serving as the School Administrator at the Mark Morris Dance Center, Jordan continues to develop her pedagogical teaching philosophy and enjoys engaging in the numerous demands of working at a large dance school. Jordan loves to create and help others find what they are passionate about so that they too can create! Jordan plans to continue spreading her love for the arts with young people in the hope that everyone can live a purpose-driven life. Jordan has been blessed to perform in both small and large venues around New York City, including Rockefeller Center and Madison Square Garden. Most recently, Jordan was blessed with the opportunity to perform at the Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night. Jordan is tremendously loved and supported by her family and friends and looks forward to all of what God has planned for her in this lifetime.
