Upping the ante on dance coverage and conversation

Jen Passios

Jen Passios (she/her) is an artist-athlete, wordsmith, and dance educator powered by improvisation.

She has spent the last 7 years enlivening audiences and activating spaces across the United States as a freelance artist and has recently teamed up with partner Jacob Regan to scheme a year-long, DIY dance roadtrip for their duo venture, CoGRAVITY, for the 2020/2021 season.

When she isn’t dancing, Jen spends much of her time with an espresso in one hand, and a pen in the other. She uses her deep connection to language to provide grant strategy support for local artists, build community through her ongoing crowdsourced writing project #AllRequestTuesday via Instagram stories, and share thoughts on her personal blog FIELD NOTES. Since 2018, she has freelanced for Eat My Words, a San Diego-based branding agency where she has helped create memorable names for businesses and products including the first FDA approved, over the counter birth control pill.
