Denna Demers started her ballet training at a young age. She was once of Jackie’s first 6 students. She was a member of the Utah Youth Ballet where she was able to perform in many of Jackie’s original pieces, Vivace being one of her favorites. She also performed in full length ballets such as Coppelia, Cinderella and The Nutcracker.
She began teaching at the age of 16 as Jackie’s assistant, where she was given the teaching foundation required to provide students proper technique needed in their ballet training. She has been teaching for Jacqueline’s School of Ballet for over 28 years. In 2011, she took a leave of absence and returned to teaching in 2017.
