I could not begin to put into words the positive affect Muse Effect has had on my daughter. Not only in the dancing world but also by teaching her to be a beautiful person inside and out. Muse effect has taught her how to think about others and always open your heart to those who might need more help than you today. We have enjoyed participating in many of the wonderful projects Muse Effect does for others. Such a wonderful group of people, making a positive affect in this world. We need more of this in the world today!❤️❤️

MuseEffect is an amazing non-profit organization that gives so many opportunities to so many people, not just dancers. I was so scared to go to LA for mini muse this past summer but the members of MusEffect made me feel like family. We also got to help out by doing some non-profit activities like making duffle bags filled with materials for foster children to make moving around all the time a bit easier. The MuseEffect team is truly inspiring.

MusEffect has brought amazing inspiration to my dancers. They teach them to be their best and do it with compassion for others. I can’t thank this group of instructors enough for the example they set for our next generation of dancers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to raise these dancers to be better people who will have a positive effect on humanity! Tina Bishop

My daughter and I were introduced to MusEffect through my daughter’s dance studio a few years ago. From the first class my daughter took with Jessica, we could tell she was an incredibly special person, and so are her amazingly talented team of dancers! We are fortunate to have a local summer intensive offered with the MusEffect crew, and every year, I can see the look of confidence and excitement radiating off my daughter’s face when she is finished with her classes. She is inspired to do better and be better because of the lessons not only in dance, but in being a positive, giving human being, that the MusEffect team instills in its students. We are truly blessed to know this group!

I love this organization and what they stand for. My daughter first met Jessica a few years back taking master classes from her at our studio. Right away we fell in love with Jessica Starr and the energy she brings and how she connects her dancers with choreography and life. We are thankful for an organization like Museffect for providing a the opportunities to make a difference in the world with using the art of dance. We are excited to see what comes next for them.

MusEffect is a non-profit that truly changes the lives of every person it reaches. I have had the privilege of knowing the people involved in MusEffect for almost 5 years and I can honestly say that I would not be the dancer or person I am today without their impact. My experiences with MusEffect have challenged me to reach outside of my comfort zone, grow in my confidence and accomplish things that I never thought were possible. MusEffect's desire to create positive change inspires me to be a better person every day. Through this organization I have met the most loving and kind people that will forever be a part of my life.

MusEffect has provided me and many other people so many opportunities! Jessica Starr and her company is so amazing! Working with them has taught me so much from dancing to helping others. I’ve gotten the chance to help them on community service work: making foster care packages at Mini Muse Experience 2019. They have inspired me to help out others and always spread positivity! I love every chance I get to learn, work, and dance with MusEffect.

I have had the privilege of being associated with MusEffect since its inception. My daughter, Sadie, is one of the principle dancers in this amazing and consciousness raising dance company and was the youngest member when the company was founded. I have watched the company members, under Jessica Starr's impeccable mentorship, grow as artists and as human beings. I have also watched numerous school-based performances and Jessica's inspiring interaction with the kids the troupe has performed for. I have been witness to the countless charity events that MusEffect has contributed their time and talent to over the last seven years. I have seen my own daughter continue to develop into a person who values community, giving back to the community, and inspiring her own and all other generations to take action or even just to thing just a little bit deeper and longer about the pivotal moments in a human life and in our world today. I am always moved by this dedicated, perseverant and talented group of people!

Jessica Starr and her MusEffect company are one of a kind. I had the privilege of meeting Jessica and Nik Gravelle the week before my studio's dance season started. Jessica and Nik flew out to Maryland to hand deliver build-a-bear animals to one of our dancer's who is not only battling cancer herself but started her own organization to help other children also battling the disease. Backstory-Ariella and Jessica had connected a few months prior when Ariella had the opportunity to be a part of MusEffect's PSA video showcasing dancers against cancer. From there, Jessica and her company made and donated about 40 bears for Ariella to be able to give away to comfort other children also battling cancer.

During Jessica's journey here supporting Ariella, I had the privilege of introducing her to our studio as well. She taught 2 jazz masterclasses and new everyone's name within the first 30 minutes. The way she engaged every student in the room and allowed them to be equally creative and conscious in class was inspiring. Beyond that, Jessica also choreographed and set a beautiful lyrical piece that was tailored perfectly to the group's strength and skills. Though it was her first time working with our studio's kids, the piece left me emotional, the parents proud, and the dancers grateful after just a short 2 day process.

Beyond that, with the help of Jessica and Nik, we were able to throw our beauty, Ariella, a surprise celebration in the mix. Ariella had her own private lesson with Jessica while dancers and families of our studio and the community gathered in another room. Once Ariella was done with her class, she walked into a room filled with love and support as we showcased the bears, watched Ariella dance, and enjoyed cake.

Jessica and Nik, it was truly an honor to meet you both and welcome you to a dance home in Maryland. I hope you will join us again to continue to work with our studio and Ariella in addition to letting your kindness, positivity, and passion inspire us further.

The MuseEffect fosters an environment of tremendous growth beyond the realm of the dance floor. It was my sons’s first experience with Jessica Starr this past summer of 2018. As a dancer, he definitely elevated his skill set as he learned from a super talented team that Jessica had assembled. But after one week of delving into some of the the realities of the professionalism required in the life of a dancer, Isaiah’s vision and goals for dance took a quantum leap forward. Jessica undoubtedly hits the mark in her endeavor to prepare each one of her participating dancers artistically, physically, mentally, communally, and soulfully. Bravo Museffect and Thank You.

We first met Jessica Starr back in 2012! What an amazing person inside and out! She choreographed a couple solos for my daughter, Maddy. She has been a great mentor and cheerleader to Maddy. Words just don’t do her justice. She’s such a special person to us. We absolutely love the message that Muse sends to all people. We love Jessica and the rest of the muse family!

My daughter and I were introduced to The MUSE and the entire MUSE family 2 years ago. I was so touched and incredibly moved how these artist dance to teach and advocate for so many who don’t have a voice or for those who need a little bit louder voice. Dance is so much more than Dance when it comes to The MUSE, it’s 100% heart and passion for helping to raise awareness to many social issues:)

MusEffect and, in particular, Jessica Starr, have had a huge impact on my daughter's growth as a dancer and a person. They have inspired her on the dance floor, with her peers, and in the community. They are amazing artists, but offer so much more. They are making a difference in communities and in the next generation. I truly believe they are impacting the future.

We met MusEffect earlier this spring when filming a PSA for Dancers Against Cancer. Jessica Starr and the whole team were phenomenal from start to completion of the project. They were obviously well prepared for the filming and everything throughout the filming of the project went smoothly thanks to their planning, When things didn't go as planned their team made adjustments with no drama. It was so refreshing to work with such professionals who love their work! The crew and cast were so supportive and kind to all of us coming in from the outside. I can't say enough positive words about this entire crew and their leadership. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again some day!

Our daughter, McKenna, has been working with Jessica Starr and MusEffect for over a year. In that time, we have developed a deep respect for Jessica and the entire MusEffect organization. They promote positive values with a strong emphasis on community involvement. Through MusEffect, McKenna has worked on several PSAs (Public Service Announcements) as well as performed at fundraising events and volunteered her time to help others. Every event she has been involved with has been a top-quality production and extremely professional in every detail. We believe this is a direct reflection on MusEffects founder, Jessica Starr. Jessica not only runs MusEffect, but she mentors all those involved as well. She is talented, creative, knowledgeable and an extremely positive influence. She takes time to get to know each person involved and takes a genuine interest in helping them become better dancers and members of the community.

We met Jessica and MusEffect when in LA filming a PSA. Jessica worked tirelessly to choreograph and film the video and she and her dancers showed such kindness and caring to the participants. Since then MusEffect has reached out to us to help my daughter with her organization "Ari's Bears" to bring bears to kids in hospitals. They helped us raise money by purchasing shirts and are going to be helping us purchase bears and deliver to hospitals.
Since initially writing this she flew to our town with many bears and helped us deliver to children. She taught master classes at my daughter’s studio to raise money for the foundation. Jessica Starr and MusEffect are very special.

My daughter began working with Muse at her dance studio in Colorado. She always looked forward to their yearly workshop. The instructors offered corrections in the most positive way. Recently we moved to Southern California for a work transfer, not only did Jessica have great suggestions for a new home studio, she also offered to help build and encourage my daughter through the transition. MusEffect uses their amazing talent and platform to make a difference in the world, but what is even more impressive to me is that they also take the time to make a difference in the lives of each individual dancer they work with. We are so grateful to have these amazing people in our lives.

My two daughters have had the amazing opportunity to work with Ms. Jessica Starr and her wonderful group of dance professionals for many years now. We were introduced to Muse and Jessica when she came to our studio to lead an in-house dance convention. I remember being struck by how enthusiastic, encouraging, and professional this group was. From that moment on my girls were " in love" with MUSE. We continue to work with Jessica and MUSE. Through the many different projects we have done with MUSE and Jessica my daughters have grown and learned so much. They have been challenged and nurtured as dancers and most importantly as human beings.

MusEffect has inspired my daughter as well as a whole generation of young dancers to use dance to promote awareness of social issues. Whether this amazing group is teaching a group of kids or performing on stage, they touch lives wherever they go. Their work raising awareness of issues such as depression, domestic violence and texting while driving reaches audiences at a very deep and personal level. I am so thankful that MusEffect has this vision and is committed to fostering this mindset in the students they come in contact with. This nonprofit is worthy of your support.

My daughter met/had Jessica as a teacher in a dance convention. The confidence that my daughter gained in just one one hour class was amazing! We were fortunate enough that MusEffect came close to us in Ohio as we are from Windsor, Ontario Canada and we were able to attend a workshop. ALL THE STAFF Were supportive and positive with the dancers. In a class in which my daughter knew not one person,it was amazing to watch my daughter have so much confidence due to the positive interaction between the staff and dancers. We would jump at any opportunity to be able to dance with MusEffect! I can't thank MusEffect enough for bringing that spark back into my daughter!❤️

Jessica Starr is one of the most inspiring people I know. Her company has affected so many people, in so many different ways. Muse Effect helps others connect to real struggles that are going on in the world today, and gets those messages out there through the beautiful art of dance. She also has personally inspired my dancers, and has helped them reach outside of their box and raise their confidence to a whole other level. We have been so grateful to be part of such an amazing experience.

My daughter has danced competitively for three years and each year her studio has invited one or more of the Muse Instructors to our in house convention. Jessica Starr herself has taught two of those years. This group of wonderful artist have had an incredible impact on our dancers. They have pushed them out of their comfort zones and opened them to new ways of expressing themselves through movement. This past month since working with Muse our dancers seem to have a fire for dance that has been stoked by their guidance. I look forward to my daughters next chance to work with Muse.

I cannot begin to explain how much MusEffect has impacted the young dancers in my life. We started out as a small studio in Montana; thanks to MusEffect and the inspiration from their dancers, our small studio is now a BIG influence in our community. Jessica Starr and her crew taught our girls to be confident performers, big dreamers and to know how much character of a person makes all the difference. MusEffect uses every bit of instruction and choreography to speak into the lives of people of all ages, teaching love, integrity and acceptance. Billings, Montana has not been the same since we've fallen in love with MusEffect!! They are amazing.

My daughter, Ruth, is a MUSE admirer and aspiring lifelong dancer. Dancing is her dream and the pursuit of this consumes every day of her life. Ruth gets inspiration, encouragement and support from this great group of people, Jessica Star and the MUSE group. She gained some terrific lessons and meaning from her Mini Muse Experience last year in LA. During this trip, Ruth and the other Minim Muse dancers made a video about distracted driving that she has shared and learned from. Ruth got her drivers license just a few weeks ago, and I am grateful that MUSE addressed this important issue with dancers her age.

My son Ryan Sadowsky age 13 first met Jessica Starr at a dance convention and he fell in love with her teaching style and choreography. He continued to seek out opportunities to take classes with her. Along the way Ryan met Matthew Fata, another member of MusEffect. After several classes Ryan was convienced that he wanted Matthew to do his solo for competition season. Along with everyone at MusEffect Matthew goes out of his way to schedule rehearsals and encourage Ryan. Because of all their support and inspiration Ryan is very excited to audition for mini muse experience this summer and hopes to attend. Ryan and I both love the message and compassion that those involved with MusEffect continue to spread throughout the arts.

I had the privilege of judging some of the MusEffect company members at Intrigue Nationals and was not only blown away by their talent, technique, and commitment on stage, but even more so by the way they treated others in classes and outside of the stage. They were so kind and genuine and you could really tell that they were mentored and trained by someone very special. I connected with one of the dancers after nationals and she told me about how she was a part of a great organization and company called MusEffect. Since then, I have followed all of their projects and videos and have nothing but great things to say about what Jessica has created with MusEffect. It is truly inspiring to see someone do such great things for the next generation of dancers, and to teach them to use their dancing for the greater good of all people. I have so much respect for Jessica Starr and MusEffect!

MusEffect is an incredible non-profit organization with a heartbeat and passion to change lives by giving back to the community and promoting social awareness and change through the art of dance. MusEffect is made up of an inspirational group of dancers devoted to hard work, excellence, community involvement, and paying-it-forward. My daughter was fortunate enough to attend The Muse Experience 2016 this past summer where the creative director, Jessica Starr, promotes an empowering, environment of love, support, encouragement and building one another up, which unfortunately is hard to find in the dance industry. I truly believe in the vision and mission of this non-profit organization and that given the necessary funding this group of people will be game-changers not only in the dance world, but in the communities they touch across the nation. My personal experience with MusEffect and Jessica Starr has been nothing but positive!

MuseEffect is an incredible nonprofit organization. In the world of dance, where everything is competitive and about "the best", MuseEffect sets itself apart. Muse is more than dancing and working to become amazing dancers. Muse is about teaching individuals, young and old, to become the best version of themselves as possible. From performing to working with the community, MuseEffect does it all. My sister had the privilege of participating in Mini Muse and she and I have both participated in the Muse Experience -each time a life altering experience. The dancers of MuseEffect are the best role models and people the world of dance has to offer. And let's not forget about Miss Jessica Starr changing lives (seriously) and inspiring dancers and teachers every day.

My daughter's relationship with MusEffect started five years ago when Jessica Starr and Matthew Fata visited our studio to inspire, teach, and choreograph. Over the years, so many members of the team have worked with her and touched her life and spirit.

Kayla had the opportunity to experience the very first Mini Muse and then this year the Muse Experience. Jessica and the company members have taught Kayla so much more than dance. They have helped her to explore and learn more about herself. They have exposed her to social issues and inspired her to give back!

MusEffect is so much more than a dance company... It is a movement and a way of life. I have loved watching them transform my daughter in such a positive way!

This wonderful group of people have been coming to our daughters dance studio in Illinois for many many years, well before all they have accomplished, however we all knew they were going to be something amazing, not only in the dance world, but in giving back to other charities and foundations. My dancer would like to join this unique and special group when it is her time to fly the nest. She has personally worked with them in group dances, solos, and just recently was 1 out of hundreds to have the opportunity to train with the entire team at MiniMuse 2016. My daughter has many new idols to look up to at this point of her dance career, but MusEffect has what she is looking towards in the future. I would be honored if she was chosen to join them down the road and we will continue to support their many causes, PSA, and fund raising. Love our MusEffect family

If you are looking for people who love dance, know dance, live and breath dance- look no further! Muse is your new dance-family. I have known Jessica Starr, the owner of Muse, for almost 6 years, since the time I began dancing in high school. She has always been a powerhouse of creativity, inspiration, and passion. Her choreography is replete with intention and she always finds the most beautiful ways to express this intention through dance. Her brainchild, Muse, is a way for her to share her talent and passion for dance with dancers all over the world. From the beginning, Muse has been a creative outlet that connects, inspires and instructs dancers. My personal experience with this company has been only positive. When I first began going to Muse events in high school, I had little dance experience. The Muse experience and connection with the dancers that were brought in to teach over the years, however, allowed me to expand my talent and passion for dance even to the point where I had the opportunity to perform as a dancer in pieces choreographed by Jessica Starr. This organization planted the seed of something I cherish to this day- a love of dance!! I highly recommend Muse but warn you, once you're part of the Muse-family, you're part of the Muse-family for life. Enjoy the experience and go start dancing like you mean it!!

MusEffect has made a positive difference in my daughter's life and in the lives of many other young dancers at our studio in Omaha, Ne. The creativity along with technical expertise that Jeasica and her staff expose to future talent regarding relevant issues is not measureable yet very noticeable. Grateful that MusEffect is highly requested and anticipated at Fusion Dance Omaha.

Museffect is an amazing organization showing the public and society the difficulties and issues people deal with day to day and doing this in a such unique and expressive way of dance. I am not in the dance or entertainment industry but I have watched Museffect since the beginning and the impact I see the dances make on myself and the message sent is life changing and can really help anyone who can relate to the issues or make them aware.
