Jessie McGee


1805 Ernest Ave., Missoula, MT 59801

Jessie McGee was raised under the big skies of Laurel, MT. It was here that she learned the values of hard work, family, friends, and the fact that life is not always fair. Music has always been a major part of her life; Whether playing alto sax in the school jazz band, singing harmonies with her sisters, playing at weddings or fundraisers, or just in the living room with friends and family, it has helped guide and mold her, into who she is today. \n\nShe attended college at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND; where she earned her bachelors degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences Education and minored in Music and History. In 2007 her life was dramatically changed when she suffered a traumatic brain injury. It‚Äôs been quite a recovery process, in fact one that is still very much on going. Many things have been lost from her former life, but not music. In fact, music has been the one thing she can turn to consistently for peace, guidance, and renewal. \nIn 2009 she moved back to her birth place of Missoula, MT to care for her ailing grandparents. Here she learned just how much music can help people with all sorts of ailments, and the peace it can bring at the end of life. Since her grandparents passing, art has started to take a front stage in her life in many ways. Through writing, photography, and Songwriting she is finding a voice and rediscovering herself. She continues to play at events with her twin and younger sister, and revels in the harmonies they produce. She is broadening her music styles and ideas, seeking knowledge and guidance from more seasoned artists; and hopes that she is able to help others find peace, or just a sense of knowing they are not alone through her music and her art. \n\n”There is no perfect life, at some point there are twists and turns, ups and downs. It is how we react to these changes that shows us who we really are.” -Jessie McGee\n\n‚ÄúI am currently on a journey to rediscover who I am, what I want to do, and how I can become the best person I can be. The trick is to accomplish these tasks without sacrificing myself to the expectations of an unrealistic, and materialistic society.‚Äù- Jessie McGee\n\nI hope you enjoy the innovative art that you see here and on my website. All pieces are created by me, and are interpretations of photographs I have taken. Each one has a different meaning for those viewing it. I hope you find whatever you are looking for.\n

Flamenco Montana / Victoria Lenihan Dance


Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre School, 2704 Brooks, Missoula, MT

Over the twenty years since we formed our group, many talented individuals have contributed to our performances. Today we continue in the spirit in which we began: sharing our love of flamenco and Spanish dance arts, reaching out beyond our community, preserving the art authentically. We offer presentations in flamenco history, as well as performances appropriate for any age group, from Sunflower Montessori Preschool to The Springs, and we can bring our own floor if need be! Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre School is our home for flamenco classes for their students and adults. We are continuing our tradition of bringing world class flamenco artists to Missoula with Yaelisa, Jason McGuire, and Jesus Montoya coming in August, 2017. For more details, check our website or call Victoria: 406-542-9270. Thank you for your interest in this venerable art, declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010.
