A tiny bit about Miss Jessica

Jessica Zei has been teaching musical theater and dance in and around Pasadena for the past 10 years. She is originally from Arizona where she had an amazing experience growing up at Desert Stages, a theater company in Scottsdale. There she learned the true magic of theater. Miss Jessica has always wanted a company of her own where she could share that passion and magic. 


What do I wear to class?

All performers should wear black dance/fitness attire. We sing and dance at every rehearsal. Street shoes are not allowed in the studio, so we suggest black split sole jazz shoes, ballet shoes, but bare feet or socks are also fine. Be ready to party!

What should I bring?

Please bring a water bottle, your music, and a great attitude to every class. For your first class please bring your signed liability and contact forms that will be emailed to you when you register

Make up classes

At this time we do not offer any make up classes. Please try your best to be at every class. Everyone is a special part of the team and important to our show!


Tuition is due on your child's first class of the month or session. A late fee of $20 will be added if not paid by the 3rd week. There will be a $35 returned check fee

Tuition also includes your child's costume rental.

Miss Jessica,

Thank you again for inviting my daughter to participate in the Paseo Tree Lighting performance. We loved watching and she so enjoyed the experience and challenge of learning new material and performing with a new group. Your enthusiasm showed through in the kids' dancing and singing. It was a fun event!
