Congratulations to Jessica – Our July Member of the Month!
Studio K member, Jessica Dolan is no stranger to the dance floor. She began dancing at the age of three and hasnâ€™t stopped since. She has taken almost every class offered at Studio K and has participated in most workshops and master classes. Sheâ€™s very versatile within her dancing abilities and is always eager to push the boundaries of what she can do. In the near future, she hopes to incorporate Pilates or Yoga into her weekly workout regiment and would also like to experiment with partner dancing, such as ballroom.
Originally from Redmond, WA, Jessica moved to Orlando to participate in the Disney College Program. While working in Merchandise, she immediately fell in love with the company and knew that she would never leave. Today, she works for the Park Event Operations and Hard Ticket/Signature Events division at Walt Disney World, where she plans and executes major events such as endurance races, youth events and festivals such as the International Food and Wine, as well as the Flower and Garden.
On her down time, she likes to attend sporting events, hang out with friends and spend time working on her second passion – photography.
Congratulations Jessica, on being our Studio K July Member of the Month!
What is your favorite class at Studio K?
My favorite class is Hip Hop X-treme Cardio with Manny.
Do you find that dance is a great way to stay in shape?
Yes, dance is such a great way to stay in shape because youâ€™re in a group environment, and itâ€™s easier for you to stay motivated. Itâ€™s also a total body workout and even works your brain by remembering the choreography and intricate combinations. The best part about it is, you donâ€™t feel like you are working out because you are having so much fun!
What motivational advice can you give someone who is starting a new workout routine?
I would advise them to keep at it! Once you get started, itâ€™s hard to keep it up, but after a while, it becomes a habit. Just remember, you will always feel better if you go.
What do you look for in a workout that will keep you coming back for more?
I really look for a workout that targets my whole body and leaves me with an accomplished and confident feeling afterward.
If you could tell anyone one thing about being a member of Studio K, what would it be?
Studio K is a welcoming place to all, and you immediately feel at home.
If you could be anything at all in this world, what would you be?
Iâ€™ve always wanted to be a backup dancer for Justin Timberlake or a performer at Disney. I also used to have a dream to be a Physical Therapist.
What is one motto you choose to live by?
â€śSomeday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.â€ť
