"Enjoy your worries, you may never have them again"

-The Books

 

Jessie Levine, from Redwood City, California, grew up in gymnastics from age 5 to 15. She was brought up in a military-like discipline. And although she loved gymnastics, after sometime, it became too harsh for the growing teen. Shortly after leaving her intense gymnastics life, she took up dance, dancing in her high school shows and taking classes at a local studio. At this point in her life, she was focused on school. A straight A student bound for college and a great career in something science-based. Jessie attended college at UC San Diego where she studied Environmental Systems, and got a bachelor of science in Environmental Biology. Meanwhile, Jessie participated in the school’s Jazz Dance Team, and trained until she made it on the local San Diego Hip Hop team, 220. She took classes in the dance department as well, maintaining her curiosity for growth as a dancer, while studying and working hard. It wasn’t until her junior or senior year that she realized, she was happiest when she was dancing. She spent all her spare time at the gym, in a studio, or with her dance team. Her desire to dance outgrew her love of science. She knew that, if she didn’t attempt a career in dance while she was young, she would look back wondering what if…So, she finished her degree and moved to LA. Jessie is now certified in barre and yoga, and loves to teach, as well as continue her own movement. Her style, and her teaching repertoire continues to grow as she shares this passion with others. 

Living in LA, she has had the pleasure to perform acrobatics on Superhuman on FOX, perform with the Toledo Show at Harvelle's, tour nationwide with a cirque company Luma Theater, dance in music videos and promos with the likes of Laurieann Gibson and Chase Bell, to train with Dana Foglia, to perform with dance companies and choreographers such as Culture Shock LA and Jojo Diggs, and to choreograph her own works for events such as Carnival Choreographer’s Ball, Club Jete, and personal videos. She regularly teaches at local studios such as IDA, Millennium Dance Complex, Yoga Vibe, Yoga Works, Corepower Yoga, Hyperslow, Movement Lifestyle, and more!

Jessie combines dance, acrobatics, and yoga to create the lifestyle that she desires. She lives a life of growth and love, always pushing to be a better version of herself, while sharing, inspiring, and experiencing all that she can.
