Jocelyn is originally from Royse City, Texas. Jocelynn has 5+ years of experience with Hip Hop dance and Step dance as well as 7+ years of experience in competitive and institutional cheerleading. Jocelynn is a graduate from the University of North Texas in which she received her B.S. in Development and Family Studies and minor in Counseling. Jocelyn was originally introduced to dancing in cheer at the age of 10 years old. She was placed on a competitive cheer and dance team to break out of her shell as a younger child. Throughout her experience of many more dance and cheer opportunities that followed Jocelynn not only had fun and learned the appropriate skills needed to be an proficient and disciplined dancer, but she also learned and developed interpersonal skills, healthy expression through movement, body discipline, and improved sense of self and confidence. Jocelynn's mission is to help give these things to our youth through their journey of learning dance and expression here at the Fuller Rhythm Studio.
