INSTRUCTOR SPOTLIGHT: JORDAN SENDER
Take one class with Jordan and you’ll see that this DC babe has a TON of energy, high kicks to the moon, and a supportive AF personality that’ll make you feel like your most confident self.
We caught up with the Confetti Captain and got the lowdown on what she’s focusing on in 2018, her dream co-instructor, and why she loves calling the District home.
Hey girl heyyy! How long have you been part of the ((305)) fam?
I auditioned in early June 2017, making it just over 6 months now!
Why’d you choose to become an instructor?
A colleague of mine told me that I would like class and she was right! Took one class and was instantly addicted. After that class, Tori came up to me to talk about auditioning, and it's all history from there!
How do you get in the zone for teaching?
Listening to any sort of fast paced pop or hip hop . . . I gotta get my mind up to speed for those ((305)) songs, because damn, they're fast.
OMG preach! When's your favorite time to twerk it out?
Late night . . . that's where I really find my groove. 😎
Walk us through your morning -- what's the first thing you do when you get up?
Mornings are rough, so I make coffee ASAP. I'm not an enjoyable person without it. 🙁
If you could dance with one artist on tour, who would it be?
Yaasss the kween! OK, let’s hear it -- what do you love about DC?
That you can actually see the sky! Nothing against NYC and those big ass buildings, but I feel like I can actually breathe in DC . . . it makes a big city seem much more approachable.
Tell us a bit about your New Year’s goals:
My New Years goals are to practice mindfulness and write in a gratitude journal. I want to focus on mental health and positivity this year, as well as being grateful for all that I have.
That’s amazing! How do you make sure you stick to ‘em?
If I want to make a change, I just have to tell my fiance. He'll call me on my bullshit and keep reminding me (bullying me) until I do it . . . but in a good way!
We gotta know -- what's your ((305)) choreo obsession right now?
“Love So Soft” . . . when that beat drops I meannnnnnnnnnn. 😍
Spill -- which instructor would you LOVE to co-teach a class with?
I would love to teach a class with HD. I love his vibe and feel like I would grow so much as a new instructor from sharing the floor with him. Plus, he's a badass and maybe I just want to watch him dance. 💁
OK last one! What's the absolute best part of being a ((305)) instructor?
Getting to dance and hangout with awesome people. The ((305)) community is so unique and supportive, and I get to move in a way that I love while surrounded by intelligent, strong and determined people. It's really a win, win.
