JENN: Kentucky Fried Diva

305 NYC OCTOBER PROOF-1890.jpg

Y'all ready for this?

NYC, get ready to taste all 11 herbs and spices in this Kentucky native’s class!  Like so many of us, Jenn struggled with her body image for many years. She finds ((305)) to be a space of healing, letting go, and self-acceptance. In her class, you’ll get lost in her wild dance moves, her explosive energy, and forget you’re in a body in the first place. She will have you beltin’ out your favorite choreo songs with pride! Join the party, y’all!

So, let's jump right in. We all have a type- what's yours?

Brunette. Bearded. Burly. Mmmm.


Speaking of which, are you single, taken or it's complicated? 

Currently single.

What's the best part of being single?

Investing in my career and friends, making decisions just for me, and flirting for free drinks in the bar.


Which 305 instructor have you been crushin' on?

All about that D - Danielle, Destiny, and Darnell.


Tell us about a time you failed.

Becoming too emotionally involved is always my downfall - I don't believe in controlling emotions but through my failure (there's one in particular in mind), I've learned not to impose my feelings on others because we are all doing the best we can at life.

Even at 5 years old, I ditched the bows for chokers, anything leopard and made my own crop tops. Thanks for letting me be me from the start, Mom.

Tell us about the last wild night you had.

It began with me emphasizing to my girls, "I'm NOT going out tonight." I quickly conceded to get drinks after dinner. Three bars later we ended up at El Sombrero in the Lower East Side. I somehow ended up DJing and we stayed after the bar closed dancing and performing. I now have free drinks for life.


If this celeb took your class, you'd totally die:

Rihanna or Bette Midler. Better yet, Rihanna AND Bette Midler.

What's one thing you've learned about yourself in the last year?

I've learned that no matter what image others project on to me, I don't have to be defined by one side of myself anymore. I can be a badass in the office one day, dropping it low on the dance floor another, basic at brunch the next, sweet n'sassy southerner the following, and so on. This is the first time in my life I've proudly embraced all parts that make up me.


What's your life motto?

Let your weird light shine bright so the other weirdos know where to find you. When that's not enough, hakuna ma-f*ck-it.

Love Jenn? Same.
