Jennifer Winkleman - Dance
Miss Jennifer - I am sooo excited to be able to explore the Slavic region in dance with the MAD campers. I was blessed to be the "D" (dance) in MAD camp when we studied Europe, India, Asia, and Africa. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance from the Conservatory of Dance at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I have owned other local dance studios and started up my own competition/performance team but MidMo Conservatory of Dance became my new home in 2010, and we moved to the Capital Mall in 2019 adding a dance retail store to the studio. I have worked with the Moscow Ballet in 2007 in their Nutcracker Performance as a teacher. I frequent many workshops including: Tremaine, St. Louis Tap Dance Festival, Dupree, I Love Dance, Spotlight Dance Competitions, Dance Makers, Dance Olympus, City Slicker Stomp, and American College Dance Festivals, and my students have performed in nursing homes, Kidsfest, Worlds of Fun, with the Wildheart Concert at Runge Nature Center, Salute to America, and local elementary schools. I have choreographed for Jefferson City Home Educator's musicals with Lady Pirates of Captain Bree, Peter Pan, as well as some choreography in M*A*S*H. Along with dance, I have been playing violin/viola for 36+ years and instructing for 15+ years. My experience includes Jefferson City Symphony, on scholarship with the Southwest Missouri University Symphony, and studies under Tiberius Klausner. When I'm not dancing or making music, I'm training dogs at MidMo Dog Training or selling Real Estate for RE/MAX Jefferson City.
Kay Webb - Music
Miss Kay - enjoys instructing students in singing! Because of her passion for singing, Kay went to college and received her Bachelor's and Master's in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy, 2000 and 2003, respectively. Over the past 25 years, she has taught many to sing. She and her husband are now operating their full-time studio, Webb Vocal Arts, while continuing to raise and support 6 very musically and otherwise talented children.
As a child, her mother, Tracy Wells, a sought-after singer and profound pianist, took Kay to sing with her at professional venues since Kay was 5. Kay's mother was also her first piano teacher. Kay's dad saw her singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" sitting on the back gate of his chicken yard; her mother saw her singing "The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow" at the top of her lungs in front of a department store mirror.
Kay loves to perform and share her voice, and help others find their talent for music. In the past, Kay has sung extensively as soloist, choir member, pianist, music organizer, choir director, and composer -- in countless Church, school, and community productions, and life events. She continues her dream of performance, pedagogy, and composition, along with her husband Glen.
Some of her favorite musical experiences are: 1) As a youth: leading youth ensembles at Church and school as a youth, composing the theme song “All for the Love of a Friend” for her Church youth conference, 2) in College -- opera scenes, musicals, and a lead in the opera Carmen, 3) Jefferson City experiences - assisting direct the Jefferson City Cantorum, organizing a children’s Camp S.H.A.R.E. for nursing homes, and teaching singing at M.A.D. camp and Itsy Bitsy Broadway.
Other interests: Kay is happy to work with her husband in their Medicine Meadows, which sells medicinal plants. You may see them Saturdays at Lincoln University Farmer's Market. She also is working to become an herbal consult in her Vital Herbs, and to later sell delicious organic food in the formation of Organic Fiesta Catering -- all these with the hopes to increase others' awareness for health. Finally, Kay and Glen are very excited to establish The Oratorio Society of Jefferson City! This special non-profit is designed to put wonderful, classical music for Jefferson City, and provide scholarships for aspiring musicians.
Music is a special gift that gives joy. Kay hopes her family will all sing together again. She delights in the music they make.
