Meeting Jamey Leverett, the artistic director at The Draper Center for dance, was truly a life altering experience for our son. Jamey’s passion for the art of dance, her attention to detail, and the ability to see the potential in a dancer is so apparent as you watch her lead any of her classes. She is a true artist who is able to create beautiful dancers out of young people who have natural ability, strong work ethic, and a love for dance. The Draper Center prepares their dancers for the realities of pursuing a professional dance career. The Rochester area is so blessed to have gems such as Jamey Leverett, and the Draper Center in their community.
