Heyyyy!!! My name is Niki Bryant. God created me with a passion for dance and a love for people. I enjoy mixing the two by building genuine relationships and sharing the love of Christ while teaching Hip Hop. My passion for creating choreography started at a young age where I spent endless hours in my bedroom rehearsing my own routines over and over again. This mentality lead me to where I am now, having 10 + years of dancing and teaching advanced and competitive hip hop at local dance studios, Central Michigan University, along with multiple organization awareness events and talent show performances. In addition to dance, I appreciate the simple things in life: quality time with family and friends, being in nature, fitness, food, and spending time with my pups! I also love to LAUGH- laughter is one of the greatest gifts. I feel very blessed and excited to have the opportunity to join the Great Commission team this year, and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you! Come jam with me!! 🎶
I began dancing when I was four years old at our local dance studio, and danced throughout my higshcool years. As a child I loved to dance, sing, and perform in musicals in local theaters playing the part of, Alice, in Alice in Wonderland and, Mary Poppins, in Broadway Review. Having parents who supported my interests I was privileged to finish my high school career graduating from a private boarding school, Interlochen Arts Academy, in Northern Michigan, where I took ballet as an elective. Attending an additional post-graduate year as a Voice Major with an emphasis in Classical Perfomance and Opera Workshop playing the role of, Mercedes, in Carmen and, Eponine, (Les Miserables) in Interlochens Best of Broadway Production. I then went on to attend Alma College graduating in 2004 with a BFA degree in Visual Art majoring in painting and sculpture. After college I attended one year of ministry training at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas. Shortly after I reunited with my high school sweetheart and after marrying we both attended four years of Bible Training Institute at Mount Hope Church in Lansing, MI. In that time we were blessed with two beautiful girls. I was welcomed on staff at Jubal Arts Dance & Music Studio as a dance instructor from 2019-2022.
I am so excited to continue teaching dance with Great Commission Studios, and especially excited to combine this art medium with my theatrical side!

Miss Jess began dancing when she was four years old.

After moving to Michigan, she danced with the Children’s Ballet Theatre of Michigan and JubalArts Dance Studio. She also taught ballet for four years at JubalArts, and felt so fortunate to incorporate her faith into her dancing and teaching there. She feels blessed to be teaching again at a Christ-centered dance studio and sharing her love of ballet with her students.
