Jordyn McNichols began dancing at the age of 2, studying jazz, tap, lyrical, and ballet at a local competitive dance studio. There she received ballet training in the Cecchetti method under Jacqueline Anderson, former president of the Cecchetti society of America, and earned honors on all of her graded exams.
At the age of 14 she began her professional career dancing with the Albano Ballet Company of America. She danced with the Albano Ballet for 5 years performing soloist roles in An American In Paris, The Nutcracker, Dance - The Language of Movement, and the Spring Repertoire showcases. Under the direction of Joseph Albano, she was trained in his "Law of Centers and Theory of Rotors", a more scientific understanding of ballet and how the body works through each movement.
In 2009 Jordyn moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of the Arts where she earned a BFA in Ballet. She trained in ballet under the direction of Eva Szabo, Anastasia Babayeva, Denis Gronostayskiy, Christine Cox, Scott Jovovich, Andrew Pap, and Karen Brown. She also received extensive training in modern and jazz with Zane Booker, Kim Bears-Bailey, and Roni Koresh, to name a few.
Since graduating from college, Jordyn has continued to study, teach, and perform. Most recently, she enjoyed the opportunity to become certified by Marie Walton-Mahon as a Progressing Ballet Technique instructor. Jordyn has over 10 years teaching experience, specializing in ballet and technique, and is happy to be sharing her ballet passion with the students at Elite.
