Meet our Team

The most unique aspect to our studio is that all Jai teachers are committed to continued  education, and they learn together under the instruction of Ella Luckett, the studio founder. This element creates not only a shared body of knowledge,  which gives consistency in classes, but also makes for a connected atmosphere among the teachers and students.
