Intellidance® Founder

Jessica Baudin-Griffin (B.Ed) is a movement educator from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with over 15 years of dance education experience. After receiving her degree in Special Education and working in early intervention and youth intervention education programs for local school boards and government agencies, Jessica decided to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time movement educator after the birth of her first daughter in 2006. Focusing on community based, inclusive programming for young families at her dance studio, J'Adore Dance, she has created more than a dozen original dance programs. During this time she continued to study the critical connection between movement and development in children during the first five years of life. When her second daughter was born in 2008, she formally launched the Intellidance® programs. The Intellidance® Method Certification program was launched soon after in 2010.

Thousands of families in the greater Edmonton area have participated in Jessica's award winning Intellidance® classes, which combine movement, music, and play to support early development and the caregiver-child connection. Jessica has trained professionals from all over the world in the Intellidance® Method, using conceptual dance and holistic teaching practices to increase the awareness of the benefits of developmentally appropriate early childhood dance education and experiences. Jessica is a sought after presenter in conceptual dance education and contributor to local family focused publications on child development, parenting, and creativity. Jessica has witnessed the joy the Intellidance® programs bring the families at her studio and is thrilled to take her programs and teaching resources to communities world wide!
