“Jess E” was born and raised in Missouri where she first cultivated a love for movement as a competitive gymnast. She earned her BFA in Dance from the University of Minnesota, and has been working with Black Label Movement (BLM) since 2010. Jessica has had the privilege and pleasure of performing with the company across the world in a vast array of spaces with a variety of collaborators. She hungers for the excitement of risky, athletic movement, and the joy of working with, and learning from, collaborators. When she is not dancing, Jessica is a new mama to baby Daphne, and enjoys spending time with her family and catching as many naps as she can!
