Jennifer Trumbauer's dance teacher jokingly said she taught Jennifer to dance before she could walk since she began dance classes at age three. Jennifer became a regular on both the Chief Halftown and Al Alberts Showcase talent shows on Channel 6 Philadelphia TV. Later Jennifer added Hawaiian dance to her repertoire and entertained at night clubs in the Poconos and at military hospitals during the Vietnam War. She also performed with local and regional ballet companies.
A Kutztown University graduate with a BS in Education, Jennifer began teaching adult ballet classes at NCC Bethlehem Campus in January 1976. She also taught adult ballet at local Y's and at Lafayette College. Jennifer still takes ballet classes in NYC and believes that ballet is the best exercise for the body and mind and that it is never too late to begin.
