Jackie Sleight went from dancer to choreographer to director, all while traveling the country teaching. She received the popular girl group, “A Sleight Touch,” which opened for some of the biggest recording starts in the industry. They eventually became a headline act for themselves, and traveled the world appearing before crowds of up to 32,000. Jackie has worked with stars including Paula Abdul, Barry Manilow, Expose, Stacey Q, Englebert Humperdinck, Peaches & Herb , Yvonne Elliman, David Hasselhoff, and Barbara Eden. She was staff Choreographer for Face the 80’s, Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship, Reebok National Aerobic Championship, and Top Ten Countdown. Her Commercial list includes Burger King, Levi’s, McDonalds, Polaroid, Honda, and more. Jackie’s dance groups “A Sleight Touch” and “Boys’ Club” each won several show and ultimately the Grand Championship, on the 80’s television phenomenon, Star Search. Jackie was also the innovator for the fitness trend, “Freedance” that took place over the country and is credited for changing Aerobics. Still, Jackie’s greatest loves are husband, Dave, and sons, Joshua and Aaron.
