This is a page description

Jessica Stillman (Company Coordinator and Dance Mentor) has been with ROOTS for 3 years. Growing up in the heart of Franklin, Jessica studied dance at various studios in the area including Dance With Tracy, DC Dance Factory, and Dance Authority. Her passion for dance began at an early age, but truly blossomed in high school when she competed for the Ravenwood Dance Team. During her years on the team, she won three TSSAA State Championship titles and placed 2nd at UDA Nationals in Orlando. In 2010, she became a member of the first Music City All Stars team, winning their first UDA National Championship in 2011 and attending USASF Worlds that same year. 

After graduating, Jessica spent a year in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee, where she was a member of the nationally ranked University of Tennessee Dance Team. After her freshman year, Jessica transferred closer to dive into her passion of teaching and coaching. While she was still a full-time student, she coached for the Music City All Stars and captained the MTSU Dance Team. During that time, Jessica choreographed for several middle and high school dance teams across both Williamson and Rutherford Counties.

She graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Organizational Communication. Since then, Jessica has continued to work with dance programs at schools such as Ensworth High School, Brentwood Academy, and Spain Park High School, and she currently choreographs for the dance team at Ravenwood High School. Her passion for mentoring dancers goes beyond technical excellence; her goal is to encourage confidence and self-worth in any dancer she has the opportunity to work with.
