Jennifer Aiken


The Academy is excited to introduce our new Wardrobe Manager, Jennifer Aiken. Jennifer will be designing and managing Academy costuming for the 2017-2018 productions as well as Youth America Grand Prix competitors.

Jennifer began creating costumes for the stage in high school as a member of the Arvada Center Civic Ballet Company and continued costuming and dancing while attending Colorado College. She began her professional dance career with Boulder Ballet and has since performed with BRIAH Danse, David Taylor Dance Theater, Dawson/Wallace Dance Project, and Zikr Dance Ensemble. She currently performs with 3rd Law Dance/Theater and Objectivity Dance Theater.

Throughout her career, Jennifer has had the unique opportunity to serve as both a dancer and a costumer. Her dance experience has given her an understanding of the special challenges that dance can present to both costume design and fit. She has created ballet, modern, and aerial dance costumes for both student and professional organizations including 3rd Law Dance/Theater, Arvada Center Dance Academy, Boulder Ballet, BRIAH Danse, Colorado Ballet Academy, Danse Etoile, Dawson/Wallace Dance Project, Frequent Flyers Productions, Littleton Youth Ballet, Objectivity Dance Theater, San Francisco School of the Arts, and Zikr Dance Ensemble. Jennifer has also created costumes for dancers competing in events such as Youth America Grand Prix and the USA International Ballet Competition.
