Jackie Kosoff | CFO Instructor

Jackie grew up in Hershey, Pennsylvania where her love for dance blossomed at the Capital Area School for the Arts where she studied on scholarship. Jackie continued her study of concert dance at Montclair State University where she studied on scholarship and was awarded the Linda Roberts Outstanding Senior Award upon graduating Summa Cum Laude. At this time, Jackie had performed with Maxine Steinman & Dancers and Earl Mosley's Diversity of Dance. Jackie’s love for musical theatre heightened late in college and ultimately led her down a new professional path.
