Jen has secured a reputation for capturing audiences’ attention with her thought-provoking and versatile artistic voice, garnering acclaim for a string of choreographic productions and tours.
She collaborates with a wide range of artists and organisations with professional and community work being commissioned and performed in the UK, Spain, France, Netherlands, USA, Qatar and Singapore.
