Jessica was a member of the 2003 and 2005 Assumption national championship dance teams and has been an assistant coach for the Rockets since 2009. In recent years, her choreography has gained the AHS dance team national honors and consistently places the Rockets in the finals rounds at UDA (United Dance Association) national competition in Orlando, Florida.
“We are grateful to have Ashley in this new role as Director of Dance Team Operations,” expressed Assumption Athletic Director Angela Brown Passafiume ’89. “We’re also appreciative of the dedication Jessica has given to the Assumption program and look forward to her leadership as head coach in the years to come,” she added.
Filling Jessica’s role as assistant coach is Lexie Dawson. Lexie is a senior at the University of Kentucky and award-winning member of the Wildcat Dance Team. She is also a former dancer at 360 Dance Studio and a graduate of Ballard High School. Lexie choreographed the dance routine the Rockets performed at the 2017 St. Xavier High School versus Trinity High School football game.
“We are excited about this transition for the future of Assumption’s dance program and continuing its strong tradition of excellence,” said Angela.
