Jessica Ferguson

School Director, Company Coordinator, Teacher

On-call substitute

Jessica is thrilled to be here with the Windfall team! Jessica relocated to Bloomington from Nusajaya, Malaysia, where she was the co-curricular coordinator and performance education teacher for a K-12 private American school. She has taught students of all ages and nationalities a variety of movement forms such as dance, gymnastics, jump rope, and aerial silks, in many countries worldwide.

Jessica teaches from the profound belief that all students are capable of learning, and that movement in all its forms is an innate part of us that is important to develop throughout life for physical and emotional well-being. Jessica received her Dance Education degree with a Musical Theater Minor from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2012.
