Jacklyn Shapiro has been a competitive Ballroom and Latin dancer for ten years and is a 10 Dance National Finalist. She began her dance training at the age of 12 at Universal Dancesport Center, where she became enamored with the art of Ballroom dance. She and her dance partner at the time, dedicated hours a day to intensive training and lessons with top teachers so that they could prosper in the competitive arena nationwide. Her passion for performance has also enabled her to perform at popular club venues, including Cuba Libre in Philadelphia and Atlantic City, as well as private functions on both the East and West Coasts. Her ballroom dance skills have landed her a spot on a Honda commercial as a principle Jive dancer, as well as a dancer on the popular Disney show Hannah Montana in Los Angeles.
She has instructed beginner and advanced level classes in both group and private settings. A charismatic and personable instructor, Jackie truly cares about her students, giving them individual attention and support through the learning process.
Jackie is available for private lessons in International, American (Social) styles and wedding preparation. La Luna is excited to welcome Jackie to our teaching staff!
