our staff


Jessica Thompson is the owner and lead instructor of Catapult Movement. As a child, she dreamed of being a performer but didn't have many opportunities open to her. She began teaching herself acro and dance at the age of 19. After years of self-training, she became proficient enough to get hired to coach gymnastics, cheer, and tumbling at a local gymnastics studio. In 2019, she shifted her focus back to where it all began and started Catapult Movement to share her love for acrobatic dance.  Jessica currently holds certifications in Acrobatic Dance, Tumbling, Flexibility, Contortion, Gymnastics, and Aerial Arts. Her passion is for performance and seeing her students light up when they finally master a skill. Jessica is a firm believer that it is never too late to begin learning a new skill. She continues to train in acro and promotes classes for all ages to prove that acrobatics is for anyone willing to go for it.
