Jen has been more than just another choreographer and just another teacher to me. Jen truly cares about each and every student she encounters and goes the extra mile to ensure that they are all getting the most out of her classes. Getting to know her on a personal level has led me into a great friendship with her and I am so happy to consider her one of my mentors. I know that I can call on Jen when I have questions about not just tap dance, but music theory, professional development, and teaching techniques. On top of being a great teacher, choreographer, and friend, she has worked her entire life to create hotbeds of tap dance in both her hometown of Detroit and now in Phoenix. She has been instrumental in the establishment of these places as centers of tap dance in the US. To Jen, the people she works with aren’t just another client, but she truly cares about their development and will do all she can to give them the best experience they can imagine.

In my opinion, this sums up Jenefer Miller :
A great dance teacher and choreographer....
1. Really LOVES Dance
2. Loves and Honors Teaching
3. Has been there, done that and keeps going
4. Supports you
5. Motivates you
6. Respects you
7. Shows empathy
8. Leads a process of discovery
9. Speaks to every student
10. Creates community
She possesses each of these skills and knows how to use them all. I have seen her take an average student, not believing they can achieve anything more in dance and even school and turn them into an outstanding student who becomes confident and thirsts to learn even more and more each day. My daughter has taken dance from her for years and absolutely loves her style of teaching and her passion for tap dance. She truly is a great teacher and we are so blessed to have her be a very important part of our life.

In addition to being a talented and accomplished tap dancer, Jenefer Miller is also an amazing tap instructor and choreographer. Her classes are full of history, music theory, and of course tap dancing fun. Since its inception in 2012, she has taught classes and choreographed a number of pieces for Circle City Tap Company (representing a wide range of ages and levels). She has also been on faculty for Circle City Tap Fest. Her classes consistently sell out. Students look forward to her visits because they walk away feeling challenged and inspired as she gives valuable material for them to work on once class is over. Jenefer’s true and pure love for tap dancing shines through in every class she teaches. We look forward to having her back as often as we can.
