Jaycee has traveled the world studying movement. She believes the way we move is the mirror for how we live.  A life-long dancer, movement has always been the answer for Jaycee. But growing up in a small New Jersey town, she struggled to find deeper meaning, expression and connection. Jaycee found her way through movement and went on to become an International, award-winning competitive Latin Ballroom dancer. This experience led to a dancing and acting career in commercials, TV, film and theater, including a series on Travel Channel titled “Dance the World.”

Despite Jaycee’s successes, she longed for a deeper spiritual meaning in her life. She found yoga, and the marriage of movement and spirituality had begun. As an extension of her practice, Jaycee embarked on a spiritual pilgrimage traveling to Peru, India, Africa, Brazil, Cuba and others where she studied the roots of movement with seers, masters and healers who helped her help others find healing through movement.  

Upon her arrival back to the country, Jaycee immersed herself in movement therapy modalities such as 5R and yoga trance dance, with teachers Gabrielle Roth, Shiva Rea and a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Alison Sinatra. She serendipitously reconnected with Taryn Toomey and found her home at The Class. The Class provided a profound fertile ground for Jaycee to work on aspects of herself that no other movement practice had delivered. In turn, she found a powerful space to help others heal. 

Jaycee’s classes are empowering, expressive and freeing. She challenges her students to move beyond the surface and moves them forward towards Freedom. 

She simply asks that her students move in a way that matters. 

Jaycee is also leads empowerment healing retreats around the globe and loves classic rock and Michael Franti.
