Kaley Jensen

Guest Artist

Kaley Jensen is a professional dancer, adjunct professor, educator, pilates instructor, choreographer, and creator of her own mentoring program for dancers: Mindset to Movement.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, she attended Brigham Young University as a dance major and business minor, performing and touring with the Theatre Ballet Company all four years. During this time, she trained on scholarship at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance and Ballet West and achieved academic and international talent awards at the World Dance Movement in Italy. She went on to pursue her Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Arizona, where she met her now husband and deepened her passion for performing, educating, and choreographing. After her first year, she was in a severe automobile accident where she broke her back but was able to recover and work her way back to dancing through a dedicated pilates regimen–which quickly became a passion. 

Since moving to Dallas in 2017, Kaley completed her pilates training and has enjoyed teaching and choreographing locally for studios and dance departments such as Richland College and most recently Collin College, to the national AGO conference for two years. She has danced professionally with companies such as Bruce Wood Dance, Zion Dance Project, Ballet North Texas, Collin County Ballet Theatre, Ballet Dallas, and most recently, Full Circle Dance. Professional highlights include performing a lead in an original work by Silas Farley of New York City Ballet, Dew Drop and Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, as well as the principal role of Phoenix in Phoenix Rising, by Zach Ingram of 6 o’Clock Dance Theatre. 

Since the birth of her son, Kaley continues to perform, educate and mentor. She is thrilled for the opportunity to dance once again with 6 o’Clock Dance Theatre, this time as a Guest Artist for the 2023 - 2024 season. Dance is an inseparable part of who Kaley is and continues to become. She is grateful for this company that allows for the continuation of her career through motherhood.
