About our 2017 Entertanment Features

Jig ‘N’ Jive Irish Dancers

 
The Jig ‘N’ Jive Dance Studio, located at 214 E. Jackson ST, is 100%
recreational and devoted to bringing confidence, discipline and
opportunity to kids and teens through dance. The studio is owned and
operated by Annie Guttierrez with the assistance of her sister,
Alexandra Klassen, who has since retired and only substitute teaches
as needed. Both sisters studied, performed and competed in Irish
Dance for many years in Canada alongside their three other sisters;
Irish dancing was a huge part of their childhood. The Jig ‘N’ Jive
Dance Studio offers Irish Dance, Ballroom, and Swing dance for
children, teens, and adults. The more persons dancing, the happier the
world can be!
Our Performance dancers, who happen to be all female this year, are
a dedicated and talented bunch encompassing middle school thru
College age dancers. Though various ages and religious
denominations, they are united in their love of Irish dance and truly
“family” when all together. Most of these dancers have been dancing
for a good portion of their lives and absolutely love the strength,
discipline, and energy of Irish dance.
From our “family” to yours, we hope you experience joy, awe, and
smiles while watching our Irish dance performance. We love what we
do.
NOTE: The Dara knot emblazoned on the front of our Performance
skirts represents the power, strength, and  familial tie that our dancers
have in our dance troupe.
