Jessica Alley grew up in Nova Scotia dancing competitively in jazz, tap, lyrical and ballet. After obtaining a B.A. in English Literature from Mount St. Vincent University, she moved to Montreal where she’s enjoyed the abundance of art, theatre and dance that permeates this vibrant city. Her interest in contemporary dance led her to Berlin last fall to participate in SMASH, a physical performance intensive rooted in Berlin’s contemporary dance community. With future plans to pursue more contemporary training, Jessica currently takes theatre classes at Concordia University, tap dances as her character Zelda Blue and is delighted to be an editorial intern at The Dance Current.
Jessica was an intern with The Dance Current between September 2014 through August 2015.
