About Aspire and Achieve


Our Mission 


Aspire and Achieve operates based upon the principle that everyone should be able to realize their dreams and strive to make them a reality. The primary focus is to get families involved in constructive and creative activities together.

We feel that the bond between a child and their family members or caretakers is best strengthened by learning and playing together. We aim to offer the highest quality programs and services to best meet the needs of our clients.

Aspire and Achieve was founded in 2011 by Jesse Kahat-Taillon. First and foremost, Jesse is a mom to two beautiful and very creative little ones.

On the professional side; Jesse has been a professional ballroom dance instructor since 2005, a licensed Zumba instructor since 2008, and a registered Music Together Center Director and Teacher since 2011. She has been sewing since the age of 8 and adopted the Kids Can Sew Curriculum in 2017. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre and a Master’s degree in Business Communication.

Jesse started Aspire and Achieve in 2011 for the sole purpose of sharing the benefits of the performing arts with people of all ages. Jesse is active in volunteer organizations of all types and wishes to make the world a better place one student at a time.
