Ginger Jensen

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”


- Benjamin Franklin

Originally from Nebraska, Ginger followed her ambition to Chicago to pursue the more abundant opportunities in dance. She was the founding artistic and executive director of Renegade Dance Architects (of Chicago), where she cultivated donor relationships, tripled audience capacity in one season and created a dynamic social media presence.  After completing her Master’s of Science in Nonprofit Management with honors from Spertus Institute in Chicago she interned at the Adler Planetarium in individual and major giving and worked as the development manager for Lucky Plush Productions.

As a dance educator, Ginger has assisted in growing programs at multiple Chicago dance schools, including Forevermore Dance & Theatre Arts, where as a lead teacher she developed curriculum based ballet, jazz & modern programs. She continues to perform and choreograph as an independent artist while also teaching master classes as a guest instructor.
