Jennifer Ruiz

Learning & Development Officer

The Phoenix Dance Theatre Youth Academy programme ignited Jennifer to pursue her dance career further. She went on to study at The Institute of the Arts Barcelona and gained a 1st Class BA Hons in Dance. Jennifer had many performance opportunities within her training, and after graduating she received a contract from Disney Land Paris as a character and parade performer.

On her return to the UK, Jennifer joined Phoenix Dance Theatre as a freelance practitioner. Those teaching opportunities provided an exciting development in Jennifer’s career. Autumn 2021 saw Jennifer join the company as one of the Learning & Development Officer. She is excited to inspire more young people as she develops in this role.
