Jessica King | Director & Principal

Miss Jess has been principal of Kings since 2015, and in that time has loved watching all her students develop and shine. She is a stickler for pure technique and will ensure all dancers understand their own bodies to create the best line and movement possible for themselves as an individual.

Roynon Dance Centre

Alongside running Kings, she is Principal of Roynon Dance Centre, which is an ISTD approved Dance Teacher Training College, and she also owns Roynon Dancewear, where she fits many of her own students' pointe shoes.

Off Duty

When not working, Miss Jess is a mummy and loves spending as much time outside as possible with her family.
