Jessica Carlson Berdei has over a decade of experience in dance education, and specializes in ballet and injury prevention.
She has presented her choreography at recitals, local shows and venues such as Lafayette’s Steampunk Festival, Louisiana Kids performances and Acadiana Village’s Noel Acadien as well as regional competitions.
Jess taught ballet locally for various studios before opening Balance Point. She creates ballet reproductions of classic stories with a twist, including the Lion King, Cinderella and The Nutcracker. She also creates mini “ballet stories” for primary and beginner classes which train basic ballet movements while maintaining the sense of joy and movement found in imaginative play.
