Jesse is a respectible dance instructor who worked for a major dance studio in the south. He is regarded as one of the best in the business. But after Cassandra's alcoholism became so much of an issue that NYADA fired her, Jesse knew that the opening for a dance instructor at NYADA was that "next big move" that he was looking for. So with nothing more than a dream and faith, Jesse left the dance studio, took a bus to New York City, and applied for the job.
