Jenn Lee is lucky to have Seattle, Washington as her home dance scene, although you can find her traveling all over the world for Balboa events. She grew up in rural North Dakota, playing the violin, oboe, and singing. She also earned a black belt in Shotokan karate. During school one of her friends took her to a swing dance, and she has loved dancing every since.
When not on the dance floor she is an Ophthalmologist by trade. She also loves hiking with her beloved dog in the Pacific Northwest and skiing on the steepest, highest mountains possible.
Jennifer holds 1st place titles from Lindy Focus, The Snowball, California Balboa Classic, All Balboa Weekend, the Eastern Balboa Championships, Montreal Dance Festival, and Lindy Fest. Her film titled “One Girl and Two Boys” featuring the Mint Julip Jazz Band won the Jazz Dance Film Festival. As an instructor, her focus is on creativity and partner communication. She is also known as an avid social dancer and is often one of the last dancers to leave the dance floor.
