Youth/Teen Beg Jazz, Teen Hip Hop 1

Jessica Hiestand, a Northwest Indiana native, grew up surrounded by the arts. After exploring many creative outlets, at 13 she found that dance was the one that would ultimately captivate her passion. From then on Jessica spent all of her time training in the Chicagoland area, and narrowed her focus in on becoming a professional dancer. When she was 18, Jessica moved to Los Angeles to join the scholarship program at Edge Performing Arts Center. She was fortunate enough to spend a full year at Edge training, learning and refining her talent to gain better insight into the industry. At the program's conclusion she chose Bloc Talent Agency to represent her as she embarked on her professional journey.

Since then she has performed for Adidas, Lorde, The All American Rejects, FOX's Empire, Chrysler, Google, and several other commercials, videos and TV programs. Jessica hopes to expand her own dance career while constantly gaining knowledge that will assist in inspiring and teaching the next generation of dancers to do the same.
