Ms. Jenni Rouse

Hello! My name is Jenni Rouse and this will be my fourth year teaching at Dutch Fork Middle School! I have been a long-term sub in the public school system for three years prior, but I am glad to have found my Fox Family!  I have taught dance for 2 years in the private studio sector until I devoted all of my time and efforts to our dance program and team at Dutch Fork Middle School!  Many call me "Coach" or "Coach Rouse" because I work with our middle school dance team at DFMS.  The DFMS Dazzlers can be seen at all Home C-Team Football games, most C-Team Basketball games, school pep rallies, occasional DFHS athletic events with Varsity Dazzlers, the DFMS Dance program performances and various community projects and events.  In order to be on the team, students must audition.  However, we have a space for everybody within the dance program at DFMS!!

My mission while at Dutch Fork Middle School is to help create and open a safe space for students to dive into the many joys that dance can bring.  I truly believe dance is for EVERY BODY!!  All I ask of my students is that they come in with an open-mind, positive attitude and give their best effort.  No experience is required--because my job is to teach all levels of dance!  I love seeing the growth each year from my students and I look forward to working with your child this year!
