Ms. Jill Brighton


Jill A. Brighton (Director, Central Pennsylvania Dance Workshop since 1994) teaches a variety of dance styles to children and adults.  Jill began dancing at age four, and graduated form Penn State University (1991).  She has extensive experience teaching diverse populations including children with special needs and senior citizens, and is an active practitioner and instructor of Pilates and Yoga.  Jill has danced professionally in Michigan, New York, and with the Pennsylvania Dance Theatre for many years.

 Introduce your students to the art of dance through a collaborative and exploratory creative movement experience.  This process fosters individual self-expression as well as group cooperation and synergy to ultimately generate a specific performance piece.  Any area of the curriculum, from history to literature, math to science, can be used as a creative seed and thus be reinforced kinesthetically.  Jill's career as a professional dancer, choreographer and teacher with more than 21 years experience is a testament to her passion to share her art with as many people as possible, particularly those who might never have the opportunity.  Jill has been actively involved in more than 15 residencies, as an individual artist and with the PA Dance Threatre.
