Owner/Director

Jackie Chambers opened S.T.A.R.S. Dance Studio 17 years ago to share her love of dance with the Clarksville area.  She began dancing at the age of 3 with Mindy Jimerson at Dancin' Feet. With love and support from her family, friends and students Jackie has been able to build a magnificent studio that allows her students to be true "STARS."

"My dancers are my heroes.  They help me to be a better teacher and friend.  We are growing together, not just with dance but in life.  I wanted to share the way I feel when I dance with future dancers.  Dancing comes from the soul and allows the true star quality to shine.  I want dance to be about art and dancers who enjoy it every day.  My heart grows each day for every one of my "STARS" as they grow."

Kara Patton

Boys Hip-Hop Coach

Hi, I'm Kara Patton! I have been dancing since the age of 4-5 and have not been able to let go of the passion since then. I have danced competitively, recreational, have been part of a high school dance line, as well as coaching that same dance line after graduating, and I have most recently gotten the chance to teach!

 

My goal is that everyone experiences the joy and freedom that comes with dance and I cannot wait to share that at the STARS Dance Studio. My 3-year-old daughter Annslee is also studying dance at STARS. I believe that being part of the studio she is shining so brightly and will only make the experience even more heart-warming for my family and I. I am looking forward to what this year has in store for the students at STARS and I'm glad to be a part of their growth.

Life at stars has become my life and I wouldn't have it any other way.I love my dance studio and dance family with my heart and soul. I feel blessed to be an assistant  with  stars dancers of ALL ages and hope my love and passion can be passed on through each and every one of them. Dance is more than a hobby for me it is my life.

Jessica Ortiz - Full Assistance Teacher

We want to give a warm welcome to our newest teacher! Miss Jess will begin teaching after the holiday break. 

 

      My name is Jessica Ortiz aka Jess. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years old. I danced with stars competitively until I graduated Montgomery central high school. I’m currently in beauty school to become a cosmetologist and I’m also in the Air National Guard. I love to dance, especially in my pointe shoes. Ballet has always had a special place in my heart and it has been a passion I can’t let go of. I have had the chance to study ballet in Germany under great teachers and also many instructors here in the U.S. I’m very excited to start teaching the little stars classes! I hope I can pass on my love of ballet and technique I have learned over the years to the rising stars.
