Email Address

Jennifer was born and raised in Arkansas City. She has followed gracefully in her mother's footsteps, spending much of her youth dancing and competing. A 1995 graduate of Arkansas City High School, she decided to stay close to home and took a dance scholarship to Cowley County Community College, where she danced under the direction of Lana Sleeper. She soon determined that dance was the life she wanted to live and began teaching beside her mother, Terri Schroeder. Jennifer has taught dance classes at Cowley County Community College and choreographed for the College Musicals and the Cowley County Singers. In 2018, Jennifer choreographed the routine for Miss Kansas, Hannah Klaassen, for the Miss Kansas and Miss America pageant . She keeps up on all the latest and greatest steps and techniques by attending dance workshops and being instructed by some of the most well known and talented dancers of all time, such as Gregg Russell, Frank Hatchett, Robbie Mackey, Sarah Jo Fazio, Kenneth Green, Gil Stroming, Mike Minery, and Dan Karaty, to name a few. She has been a driving force in the creation of the Ark City Dance Company (ACDC) and has not only lead her students to National Titles, but she has been awarded National and Regional Choreography Awards.
