Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Jessica Iglesias’ passion for dance began when she was 8 years old. Two years later, she was fortunate enough to begin training under the guidance of Amanda Tae, when Focal Point first opened its doors in 2005 and did so until she graduated high school in 2013. In her time there, she trained in a wide variety of styles such as Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Contemporary, Lyrical and Hip-Hop. In addition to being an active member in Focal Point’s company, her dance career continued to thrive as she attended Coral Reef Senior High School, home of one of Miami’s finest magnet dance programs. At Coral Reef, she was part of its nationally acclaimed dance team, Cudettes, and took home five 1st place national trophies in both Jazz and Hip-Hop. Jessica continued her education at Florida International University, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts. This is her third year teaching at Focal Point and she continues to be humbled by the opportunity to spread her love of dance while working alongside some of Miami’s finest choreographers.
