Jesse Berry

Tap Instructor

In his fifth season with Tapestry Dance Company, Jesse began his dance training at the age of three at Moschetta’s Performing Arts Center in Fredericktown, PA. He studied multiple dance forms but over his many years of training, tap dance remained his true passion. He has continued to foster his love for the art form by not only performing but teaching and loves sharing his passion for tap dance and it’s history with younger students. He currently is on staff at Tapestry’s Youth Academy, and has taught various workshops and intensives throughout the United States. Jesse has performed in original TDC works including, “One Step at a Time”, “Of Mice and Music – A Jazz Tap Nutcracker”, “Listen”, “Just Tap”, “April Fools”, “Sound and Silence”, “The Souls of Our Feet”, and the tour of “Passing it Forward, the American Dream?”. As a soloist, Jesse has performed in multiple cities throughout the US and in 2018 he was invited to Qingdao, China where he and guitarist, Charles Rangel performed over 100 shows in just 36 days at the International Qingdao Beer Festival. Jesse is grateful for the opportunity to work side by side with the talented members of TDC under the direction of Acia Gray. When Jesse is not on stage or in the studio teaching, you will find him downtown performing on the streets with local Austin artists and musicians.
