One if the best dance teachers around! Wants her students to do well and sets the bar high, but is always there to help. Jill was very funny and made the morning class something to look forward to. You really do have to practice or at least come to class a lot to do well in the course.

Jill Yager is a really good teacher. She's really approachable and funny. She makes my 8am tap dance classes worth attending. She dances with you, helps you if you need it, and definitely encourages people as long as they're trying. She will be feisty if you miss a class &show up lost the next day. Overall, easy A class. Super fun! :D

Jill is the best teacher ever and I've only had her for 2 weeks so far! She makes tap so much fun, and I've gotten so much better so quickly. I would take her classes on my freetime!

She is super easy to talk to and really helpful. She really wants students to do well and pushes them to their potential. The warm-ups will work you but the pain is worth it. She makes everyone a better dancer.

JILL IS AWESOME!! So easy to talk to and loves what she does. A great teacher, and very helpful. If you're a dance major/minor/or if you're just trying to get done with GE, i would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS CLASS. Warm ups will WORK U : ) but the class is sooooo worth it, TAKE IT!!

Jill is great. It's very different and much more demanding than jazz 1, but it's worth it. It's a lot more fun and pushed you to do a lot better. She obviously expects a lot, but in a good way. She's willing to help and go over things after class if you need it and she's very fair. Warm ups are harder than the class. It's definitley fun

Awesome teacher! The class is a challenge if you aren't a dance major but she makes it fun and exciting. Encourages students to do their best and push themselves to succeed. The 1 hour warm-ups are great and I got so toned by the end of the semester. I'd definitely recommend her class to anyone!

I love Jill. She totally imporved my skills. She makes the class fun for everyone. And the dances she'll put hard moves not to hold back people but to also challenge everyone. I can't wait for Jazz III in the Fall. She's teaching it!
