Jessica Cumberbirch is the founder and creator of Studio Balletvolution.
Jessica has dedicated her life to dance and fitness, and also to creating programs that will appeal to all with a multitude of health benefits.
Jessica Cumberbirch studied at The Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, The Kirov Academy (Washington, D.C.), L’Ecole Superieure de Danse du Quebec and completed her ballet studies in Russia. Jessica graduated from The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St-Petersburg, Russia in 1998. Upon her return to Canada she danced with many professional companies such as Alberta Ballet, the Montreal Opera, Louise Bedard Danse, Lina Cruz, Mariko Tanabe as well as Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur among others.
Jessica has taught professional level ballet classes as well as dance classes for beginners for over 10 years, also coaching professionally as a rehearsal mistress. She founded and managed Leiko Danse School which included a Sport-Etude program. Jessica also performed her choreographic works under the name of Leiko Danse. Jessica has now turned her attention to the creation of Studio Balletvolution teaching adults with or without experience. Knowing the health benefits of keeping active and the benefits and joy of ballet Jessica would like to share her passion for dance tailoring different classes to different needs and experience levels. Throughout the session students will learn the basic elements and passion of dance, improve their posture, flexibility as well as improve muscle tone and strength. The class will consist of floor, and center work with students learning a dance choreography.
At Studio Balletvolution we believe in an open and non-judgmental environment with an emphasis on learning in a warm approachable environment where the student will be able to express themselves through movement in a well thought out class.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to enjoy the health benefits and joy of movement that Studio Balletvolution offers.
