Jess is proud to be the new Principal of Stagecoach Oxford Headington. Stagecoach has been a big part of her life. She became a student at 10 years of age and continued throughout her teenage years also becoming an assistant at Oxford Stagecoach. Later, during and after graduating, she taught there and at several other Stagecoaches, but has been Oxford’s dance teacher for the past three years.

Timoune in Once on this Island and Cinderella in Cinderella the Panto.
After graduating, she was cast as ‘Aladdin’ in Aladdin UK Tour and then sang and danced at numerous corporate events in London and around the UK. Before hanging up her professional dancing shoes, she had two wonderful years touring all around the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands with the highly successful company ‘Back to Broadway’.
For the past 5 years she has run dance classes in her local area and choreographed The Oxford Youth Musical Theatre’s productions of Wizard of Oz, Miss Saigon, Crazy for You, CATS and Hot Mikado. More recently, she has become the choreographer for The Abingdon Operatic Society.
Jess is excited to take on Stagecoach Oxford Headington and has great plans for its future.
