“Take a step back to look in and then take that ONE step forward.” – Jessica Starr 

On this episode, we chat with Jessica Starr, founder of MusEffect, a non-profit organization dedicated to raise social awareness through performance art. 

Jessica shares her story as a young dancer in competitions and conventions to attending college, and finally starting her own business and dance company in 2005.  Through her own journey, Jessica finds meaning and an understanding of her calling…to dance and create for a purpose. 

Receiving an award as a top-rated Great Non-Profits of 2019, MusEffect is committed to fostering a constructive dialogue on social issues through performance art, while enriching and empowering audiences of all socioeconomic backgrounds.  MusEffect explores topics relevant to today’s society with a purpose to ignite personal initiative and encourage healing.  To experience “the MusEffect” is to feel the synergy between art, intellect and intention.  These 3 principles, woven together, cultivate positive and permanent changes that elevate the quality of life among their participants.
