Jennifer Venable Austin, a Knoxville native, was an original member of the East Tennessee Children’s Dance Ensemble. Following high school, she majored in dance at the University of Tennessee, performing as a soloist for UT’s New Repertory Dance Company. She continued her dance training in New York City: modern dance training with the Martha Graham Company, Alvin Aliey, and Limon School, while her ballet training was with the Joffrey Ballet. Jennifer’s extensive jazz training includes Bob Fosse, Louigi, Frank Hatchett, and Joe Tremaine.

After several professional dance years, Jennifer founded Arts In Motion in Kingston, TN. Currently, Arts in Motion provides fine arts dance training for over 400 East Tennessee students. They currently stage the largest production of The Nutcracker in Tennessee (over 100 cast members) and are known for their Summer SOLO (Summer of Learning Opportunity) intensive dance camp - teaching modern, jazz and ballet as well as dance history, and video analysis. Jennifer has also been a choreographer for the College and Community Musical Productions (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Oklahoma, Sound of Music, Pipin, Seussical, Oliver, Hello Dolly, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and Meet Me in St. Louis). She continues her dance education with bi-yearly trips to New York City, training at Broadway Dance Center and The Ailey Institution, and teaches over 20 classes a week in styles such as ballet, jazz, modern (Graham and Limon style), hip-hop, musical theatre, pilates, and yoga.
