Jessica Loeser competes on hip-hop team
Dancing has always been an integral part of Jessica Loeserâ€™s life. The graceful and nimble former Revere High cross-country and track star now competes on the hip-hop based Dance Fusion team at Quinnipiac University. The Fusion is the perfect team for Jessica because of her fervor for dancing.
â€œNothing bonds people together more than passion,â€ Jessica expressed. â€œItâ€™s a blessing to be able to spend time and work with other girls who share the same passion as I do.â€
Jessica, a soon-to-be-junior at Quinnipiac University, did not try out for the Dance Fusion until the second semester of her freshman year. As a dynamic and exuberant dancer, Jessica made the transition to the Fusion a smooth changeover. Jessica demonstrated her talents to the team and quickly became close friends with her new teammates.
Joining the Dance Fusion became the â€œbest decisionâ€ in Jessicaâ€™s freshman year.
â€œBeing able to do what I love several times a week, makes all of the school work feel that much easier,â€ Jessica depicted.
In her sophomore year, Jessica relished being a returning member of the Dance Fusion.
â€œI was able to guide new members along as others had done for me, and step up to choreograph pieces for the rest of my team to learn.â€
â€˜Midnight Madnessâ€™ is a renowned event that the Dance Fusion participates in every year in October for parentsâ€™ weekend at the university. Jessica experienced â€˜Midnight Madnessâ€™ for the first time last year and savored in the opportunity to exhibit her abilities as a lively and scintillating performer.
â€œThis performance [Midnight Madness] is our largest for the year and it was such an amazing experience,â€ Jessica articulated. â€œSince I was a kid, performing has always been one of my favorite things, so I felt very in my element.Â It was nice to have a chance to show my parents and peers at school how hard my team and I work.Â I am already looking forward to this yearâ€™s performance.â€
As a member of the Dance Fusion, Jessica gets the chance to display her skills as a dancer at the menâ€™s and womenâ€™s basketball games at the TD Bank Sports Center, the home court of the Quinnipiac Bobcats.
As a diverse and spirited group, the Dance Fusion welcome the prospect of performing in various types of routines. Last April, the Dance Fusion implemented their first ever showcase event.
â€œThis showcase was basically a recital, with around twenty-five short dances, each choreographed by someone on the team,â€ Jessica explained. â€œI was given the chance to choreograph a dance for this special occasion.â€
The Dance Fusion may be referred to as a hip-hop dance team, but the girls on the Fusion are well-rounded dancers, according to Jessica.
â€œThe showcase was our chance to show some of other dance talents off,â€ Jessica depicted.
Jessica is ecstatic for the upcoming season as she awaits the new challenges and elements as a member of the Dance Fusion.
