Even while instructing other dancers, Jaime continued performing with the Louisiana Delta Ballet. She joined Red River Dance Theatre Company in 2004 and participated as a performer, an instructor as an assistant director. She has gradually returned to sharing her excitement for dance through teaching and now rejoins the Red River Dance family as the Artistic Director. She sums up her passion for teaching with these words: Being able to share my love for dance with dancers of all stages is a gift I am able to give that blesses me over and over. When I step into the studio as a teacher, I see myself in each and every dancer. The dancers become my family and they become the dancer I once was or once aspired to be. To be able to guide and help the dancers achieve their goals gives me such an amazing high and I am as excited for them as they are. I consider it an honor to be able to play just a small role in these dancer’s lives.
