Jessica Cotton

Lead Tutor - Young Performers and BTEC

Jessica studied her BA in Musical Theatre at the prestigious Guildford School of Acting, UK. She has more than 12 years’ experience in teaching the Performing Arts, and 9 years in the Events Co-ordination and Music sector.

Before joining SPAA, Jessica had been living in the UAE for more than 9 years, affording her the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience working with many different nationalities and cultures. She has a love of teaching and thrives off the energy and excitement performing arts can bring into a young person’s life. Jessica particularly enjoys seeing how someone’s confidence and character can be enhanced and grow through drama, music and dance.

Jessica relishes in the variety of life, acquiring and developing additional skills, and sharing her experiences to support and train individuals or groups to achieve their own individual or common goals.

On a personal note, Jessica loves animals and her favourite hobbies include spending time in the outdoors and working as a professional singer / songwriter in her free time away from SPAA.
