Jan Penagos started her dance training in ballet at Cambridge and Boston School of Ballet but found her true home when she discovered jazz in her college years. She studied under Sandy Hagen in Boston and under Denise Leitner in Los Angeles. Both Sandy and Denise are direct lines from Luigi and also Hama. When Jan moved to the Bay Area, she was elated to discover Zohar Dance Studio which she immediately realized had roots in the jazz style she had fallen in love with. She danced as a member of the Zohar Dance Company starting in 1998 until it ended; she has remained at Zohar not only for the dancing, but for the incredible community. She believes Zohar fosters the growth of every dancer, honoring each dancer's journey and technical skills. Jan is personally pushed to become a better dancer each day. She has created lifelong relationships with other dancers because of the opportunities to dance, laugh, and perform together. She is both honored and moved to teach and share her insights into this style through the Break It Down series at Zohar. She assists and subs for Vivian's class.
