Jasmine Thompson-Powers

Jasmine began her dance and gymnastics training at the age of 5 in northeast Ohio. At the age of 7 she began competing and winning team and solo awards at the regional and national level. At age 10 she became a part of her communities gospel choir where she honed her vocal skills. In High School, Jasmine knew that she found her niche in the arts and expanded her education by attending numerous camps, classes, and conventions where she worked with highly regarded coaches, teachers, and choreographers. She knew then that her life would revolve around the performing arts. 

After graduating high school, Jasmine went to Iowa State University on a full-scholarship for gymnastics where she competed all across the country. She also became a member of the Dub-H hiphop troupe on campus, studied musical theatre, and graduated with a degree in broadcast. Her goal was to be a well-rounded performing artist, and after graduating, Walt Disney World took notice. Jasmine became 

‘friends’ with Princess Tiana, danced down Main Street USA in numerous parades, tumbled as an acrobat in the world-renown Block Party Bash parade, and sang and danced in a hip-hop show called Disney Channel Rocks!

Following her career at Disney, Jasmine received an opportunity to perform her dream role as Lorrell Robinson in the musical, Dreamgirls, produced by Mad Cow Theatre in Orlando, FL. During this time, she also had the privilege of teaching hip-hop and lyrical dance to students at New Destiny Christian Center, under the leadership of Pastor Paula White. Soon after she was off, sailing the high seas as a Playlist Performer for Carnival Cruise Lines. She fell in love with the combination of live singing, dancing, and acting. Since returning from her contracts, Jasmine is more excited and motivated than ever to share her knowledge of the performing arts in the Middle Georgia area.

Teaching and working with people of all ages has always been one of Jasmine’s passions. Her desire is to produce the ‘whole package' in her students, an ability to do it all! Needless to say, owning her own performing arts studio is truly a dream come true!
