Jackie has an extensive dance background and was trained in Cechetti Ballet as well as Modern Jazz. She found her true passion in the Tango after taking her first lessons with Mareli Schroter in 2003 and soon after travelled to Buenos Aires to experience Tango culture.
Over the past years she has trained with many great Tango masters including Juan Carlos Copes and Johanna Copes, Milena Plebbs and the late Osvaldo Zotto. She was also part of the El Cacha performance team and has danced in El Cacha’s past performances including “El Beso” and “Tango Portraits“.
Jackie regularly travels to the Netherlands to further her own style of dancing and teaching with Eric Jorissen.
