Although she is an established Salsa expert instructor in Arizona she also loves teaching Ballroom, Latin, Country-Western, Swing, and Theater Arts. She has worked on several projects like choreographing a Salsa formation for a Professional Women’s Group that has been performed throughout Tucson and Sierra Vista, as well as many Theater Arts routines.  In addition, Jacque also is a competitive Pro and Pro/Am Dancer.
