Beth DeJesus

Dance Instructor

Beth began dancing at the age of 3, and by the age of 12, she was a member of the competitive dance teams and a competitive soloist for Sharron’s School of Dance in Twinsburg, Ohio. A performer at heart and a triple threat, Beth excelled in dance, voice and acting, and performed in numerous theater shows and with her high school’s national-award-winning show choir, The Great Expectations.

While earning her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Dance and Communications from Baldwin-Wallace College, she taught dance at several studios and community centers, as well as presenting musical theater dance workshops and choreographing high school and college musicals. Beth was a featured choreographer for several Baldwin-Wallace dance concerts and was invited back as an Alumni Choreographer. She also performed in cameo roles with several professional dance companies as a member of the Baldwin-Wallace dance program.

After college, Beth took a hiatus from the dance world due to an injury. During that time, she worked as a manager for several years in the retail and financial industries. In 2008, Beth took a position as the Communications Manager in the Office of Mayor Frank G. Jackson for the City of Cleveland, Ohio.

Beth’s heart and passion has always been her strongest creative asset. In October of 2014, she reduced her office life to homeschool her children and pursue work where her passions could thrive center stage. Beth worked at Kibler Dance Academy for the 2014 – 2015 season as a dance instructor and office assistant and works as a substitute dance instructor at Olmsted Performing Arts. She will continue to follow her dreams and help other dancers fulfill their dreams.

Beth is married to her supportive husband, Julio, with whom she has two loving children, Alejandro and Carlianna. The family lives on the west side of Cleveland.
