Jessica Phillips began her training in a small town outside of Houston, Texas. Once she saw her first ballet performance at age 8, declared this is what she wanted to do professionally. Her primary training was with the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, D.C. In addition Jessica has studied at The School of American Ballet, Houston Ballet and Pacific Northwest Ballet. She competed as a finalist in the internationally acclaimed ballet competition Youth America Grand Prix in New York City several years.
Upon graduating from the Kirov ballet boarding school, Jessica accepted an offer to join Ballet Arizona’s (BAZ) company in 2009 where she danced 9 seasons. In her time with BAZ Jessica performed corps de ballet, soloist and principal roles in a wide range of classical ballets, neoclassical ballets and contemporary pieces.
Through the demands of her professional dance career, Jessica realized the necessity of a holistic healthy lifestyle in order to show up on and off the stage at her best. Jessica has a passion of holistic health and wellness and is a certified holistic health coach and certified Kundalini yoga teacher. Since retiring from Ballet Arizona in 2018 Jessica has been teaching full time ballet, creative dance, meditation and yoga in addition to holding ballet workshops around Arizona.
