Jennifer Clippinger (Dudik) graduated from Point Park University with a BA in Dance. While attending school she performed in numerous musicals at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, West Virginia Public Theater and Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera. Jennifer spent 11 years in New York City during which time her career encompassed many different areas of the performing industry. Career highlights include touring the country with the First National Tour of “The Will Rogers Follies”; performing as a Rockette for 4 years at Radio City Music Hall; performing in numerous musicals at Paper Mill playhouse (including “Crazy For You” which was taped for PBS); touring the country again with the First National Tour of “The Producers”; and finally herdream come true, performing on Broadway with “The Producers.” In between she did work in commercials, modeling, print, soap operas,films,and industrials.
Industrials afforded her the opportunity to pursue another of her passions:travel. She traveled to such places as Brazil, Japan and the Bahamas. During her time on Broadway, Jennifer felt that she had achieved all of her goals and dreams. She and her husband decided to move back to the city of her alma mater and start a family. They now have a 7 year old son, Noah and a 5 year old daughter, Charlotte.
Jennifer was a Music Together mom from the time her daughter was 2 and she was hooked ever since! She decided to ask Lauren Whittaker one day if she needed any extra teachers and Lauren said yes they did! Jennifer completed the Music Together Teacher Training in February 2012, and started teaching her first classes in the Spring of 2012. She loves teaching such a wonderful program as Music Together and looks forward to continuing to learn and grow as a teacher. Jennifer also continues to work in films, commercials, voice-overs and print.
