Helene has spent her career helping others as a dedicated Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN, BSN). After sustaining a shoulder injury, she was unable to perform the physical requirements of a bedside nurse, so she took a nursing position which had her behind a desk for over eight hours a day. Knowing the risks of a sedentary lifestyle, she began eating healthier and working out to exercise videos. She noticed that these programs were all done by young, fit people... people with whom she had little in common. With her own injury to consider, she found that she had to modify these programs, so she began searching for videos which catered to the over 50, not so skinny, not so agile crowd, and to her surprise found none. So, in collaboration with her sister, who was currently teaching a special needs dance class, an idea was born. Many years of caring for her patient's health needs turned into a new passion for proactive care and fitness, especially for this underserved population.
Since the age of three, dance has been a driving force in Jean Anne's life. She has performed with the nationally renowned dance company, WAVES, founded by Shimon Braun. During her time with WAVES, she was Assistant to the Choreographer and Dance Captain of the Company. She has taught instructional classes for WAVES, Pennsylvania Ballet, Bryn Mawr College, College of the Performing Arts; as well as taught Masters dance classes for Dance Masters and ITDI. She was also the owner of JazzWorks Dance Studio and choreographer of The Company in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to her dance instruction, she has cared for the elderly as a dedicated geriatric nurse for over twenty years. Jean Anne's passion has always been devoted to teaching dance... her new passion is creating "smiles" for those that need them the most. Look Who's Dancing is fulfilling her dream of bringing dance and exercise to those who otherwise would not have this opportunity.
