We are a theatre company that was created to show young adults and children with developmental disabilities that they will never be held down. They are ANCHORLESS.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity to young adults with developmental disabilities to express themselves and grow through theatre. The foundation of our company stems deeper than just a production; we strive to develop self-confidence, expression, and essential life skills, such as public speaking, in each of our students. We care about our students and unite them with typically developing peers to create a safe learning environment. Our focus is on progress, growth, and creating friendships.

She also likes helping her fellow cast mates in studying their lines and practicing the dances.
Outside of Anchorless, Jessica participates in programs at The Friendship Foundation and Social Vocational Services. She also likes to play video games and color in her spare time. Around friends, she's always kind and engaged.
