Working with Jessica has opened so many doors. I’ve done a lot of shows before working with Jessica, but unlike those other experiences, I decided to keep in contact with her. Looking back, I can’t even imagine how foolish it would’ve been not to! She has offered me many other opportunities. I was even able to do my first paid show thanks to her. Jessica works so hard is willing to fight for you  to make sure you succeed. While she often works with young performers, she has done so much for me as a young adult, applying to colleges. She has been so supportive and helpful, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to work with her.

Thank you, as always, for everything you do for my daughter and all of these girls, and in particular, this year for refusing to give up!  My daughter is so lucky to have you for a teacher.  I’m so sad that the girls did not get their usual chance to perform this year, but I am grateful for everything they learned.  Looking forward to other chances when the world gets back to normal.

I’m so grateful for all you have given me. You are the reason I perform and the reason why I am confident in myself. I do not think I could have become who I am today without knowing you believed in me! 

I cannot thank you enough for the happiness I have coming to dance class and being with my favorite people in the world.   This program has given me so much. I will certainly be back next year and the year after that to watch the everyone grow into the tremendous performers that you help them to become. You have inspired so many kids, especially me. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I just wanted to thank you so much for everything.

My experience with Courtney and Jessica has been one of the best experiences of my life, and I have been in many shows, at many places.

From all the laughs everyone shared, to making some great friends, I just wanted to thank you for the entire experience. 

I thank you for giving me the opportunity to be in this amazing show.

This was one of the most fun, energetic, and amazing experiences of my life.

You have taught me so much, both on stage and off, and I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to work with you again.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

Approaches every project with a sparkling vision.  Exceptionally well-organized, often planning themes well before anything begins.  Highly collaborative, and enthusiastic, bringing life to the stage by giving the performers exactly what they can handle, making them shine.




Pictured:  Sydney Chan, a student since 2014, went on to do A Christmas Story (Broadway National Tour), and was cast two years in a row!  A very dance-heavy show, Jessica Lombardi has taught Sydney in Musical Theatre, Tap,  Jazz, and Ballet, and worked privately before auditions. preparing for the dance call and callbacks.  Miss Chan was offered a third year on tour, but was hired for the Broadway National Tour of The King and I.

Thank you for everything you have done for me these  past 2 years.  PA5678 is really the place I built self confidence, and you're such an inspiring person to me.  Thank you again!
