Reese Jones

Reese Jones, a self-proclaimed self-taught dancer, saw college as an opportunity to finally start exploring her lifelong passion for dance. As a freshman at Valparaiso University, Reese became the Program Coordinator for the African Students’ Association, where she coordinated and choreographed all dance performances showcased at their cultural events on campus until graduating in 2020. She also participated in the Dance Ensemble for two years, training and then performing in a variety of hip-hop, jazz, and contemporary pieces. After college, she enrolled in a number of workshops through Red Clay Dance Company that were rooted in African diasporic dance. Since then, Reese has collaborated with notable music artists and created choreography for them, as well as showcased that choreography in their music visuals. Reese has been teaching dance for four years, spending most of her time teaching weekly dance fitness classes, occasional drop-in classes at Indie Media Studios in Chicago, or rehearsals for a not-for-profit after-school drama club during the school year. Her passions for dance, youth development and self-discovery, are the driving force behind her commitment to the arts.
