Company Member, Business Manager
Jennifer Pfaff Yonally (Woodbridge, VA) fell in love with dance at the age of 7. Originally aspiring to be a ballet dancer, Jen trained intensively under Ann Boyle at Dance Etc. School of the Arts. The wealth of the arts in the Washington DC area afforded her the opportunity to take master classes & residencies from many well-known ballet companies that toured through the area. She even had the opportunity to perform on the Kennedy Center stage! Fascinated with all aspects of dance, Jen decided to learn the ins and outs of running a dance organization by receiving her B.S. in Dance Management from Oklahoma City University. This is where Jen discovered the uniquely expressive abilities of tap dance to tell stories, covey emotions, and conjure beautiful rhythms. Upon graduation, Jen moved to Chicago and became a founding dancer of Chicago Tap Theatre, and as Business Manager, has been an integral part of the company’s development. She was also integral in successfully developing the dance program at the Beverly Arts Center, serving as Dance Coordinator from 2004-2010. Not content to keep her feet still, Jen recently received her MBA with a Certificate in Accounting from North Park University and is excited to continue pushing CTT to the next level of innovation and excellence.
