I hired Jenny to be apart of my full length Nutcracker production with a Circus twist. She provided both professional dancers and amazing choreography that took my show to the next level. Since then I have worked with her on multiple events for many years. Her professionalism and organization makes planning an event smooth, easy, and fun. She brings unique costumes, talented performers, and years of experience. I highly recommend using her services!
