Mrs. Brittany created Platinum Studios and has been the owner and operator of Platinum Studios since it was established in 2012. In 2013 Brittany decided to turn Platinum Studios into a nonprofit to honor her Great Grandmother Mary Kay Ash. Mary Kay, creator of Mary Kay cosmetics, instructed members of her family to use their good fortune primarily for education, health, and to help others, and that is what Brittany hopes to accomplish with this dance studio. While Brittany has never been a dancer herself, she greatly enjoys watching the children in her studio, including her own daughter, benefit from dance!
My name is Jessica Baxter. I am one of the instructors here at Platinum Studios. I have been with Platinum since we opened, about 8 years ago. I teach mainly ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, and contemporary. Lyrical and tap are my favorite styles of dance. I started my dance career at the age of 2, with the Performing Arts Company in Maple Grove, MN. In 6th grade I started training at Dancin’ on Broadway in Brooklyn Park, MN. I also danced with my high school team at Osseo Senior High; as well at The College of Saint Benedict. Throughout all my years of being a dancer, I have trained with many professionals including Mike Minery and Kim McSwain; and in more recent years Rhonda Miller, Mandy Yip, Mia Michaels, Denise Wall, Nan Giordano, and Tricia Miranda. I also have my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in math, from The College of Saint Benedict. I am also an assistant director at a child care center here in town.
