Jen Bio_edited.png

Jennifer Matus
Owner & Artistic Director

Jen is a dedicated teacher and choreographer with over 20 years of experience. As a dance educator, Jen is committed to inspiring dancers to delve deeper into their understanding of their bodies and how they move. She holds a B.F.A. in Dance Performance from Towson University, an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy from The Swedish Institute and is certified to teach Pre-Primary to Level 5 of the ABT National Training Curriculum.


Her extensive training and experience performing in NYC has informed and transformed how she works with her students. Each class is dedicated to exploring and pushing the boundaries of one’s physical limits, real or perceived, from warm-up, through improvisation to choreographed movement. Jen loves to explore how bodies move together as well, so she enjoys doing partner work and watching her students explore movement together. Her choreography challenges students to execute difficult movement with technical precision while conveying true emotions that tell a story the audience can then relate to their own experiences.

Jen has studied at the Ailey School, Broadway Dance Center, STEPS on Broadway and participated in workshops with Parsons Dance Company and Stephen Petronio. She has 20 years of experience working with both recreational and competitive dancers of all ages. Her soloists consistently place in the top ten and receive special awards for their performances, and Jen has received choreography awards for her group work as well.


She has taught at various studios throughout the tri-state and mid-atlantic regions and has taught anatomy to dancers through the :pushing progress Contemporary Training Program in New York City.

Other performing experience includes: performances throughout the Baltimore area with Stephanie Powell Danse Ensemble, the Élan Awards and For Dance Inc Showcases as a guest of Synthesis Dance Project, The Puffin Room with LiNK, The PULSE Showcase, SONO Arts Festival in Connecticut and many more performances as an original member of :pushing progress, a contemporary company under the artistic direction of Calen J. Kurka. Jen was also a featured tap dancer in Rhythm Tap: Stompin’ in the City with Sharon Heller, an instructional tap video.
