Teacher Feature with Jessica Westermann

Meet Jessica Westermann. A long time faculty member of the Tap Dance Centre and What’s On? Tap! About Jessica:

Favourite Holiday Memory
Hawaii with Richard in 2011. 10th Anniversary trip. Saw the sunrise on the top of Haleakala volcano at 10,000 feet above sea level and then biked down from 7000 feet; stopped halfway down at a restaurant that served pancakes with coconut syrup! O.M.G.

Name a pet peeve
People who drag their feet when they walk. Pick up your feet people!! Use those legs!

Name one thing on your bucket list
Uh???….crap I can ‘t think of anything….that’s so funny….I guess my bucket is full. lol!

If you could work with one choreographer from the past, who would it be?
Probably Hermes Pan. I love all of Fred Astaire’s unique tap solos and duets. His collaboration with Hermes Pan was a brilliant relationship.

Share a lesson you learnt from being in The National Tap Dance Company of Canada
Don’t anticipate. Listen to the music and let it guide you. Your feet are an instrument.
