Jessica “Remo” Saul, often referred to as Remo (short for “remolina”) due to her being a “whirlwind” of energy, is the founder and owner of the Art of Stepping®(AOS). AOS is the 1st and only organization in the U.S. to build a nationwide curriculum-based program that teaches stepping based on mathematical formulas. HER GOAL: To ensure individuals of all ages have access to artistic programs, especially those in underserved communities, that encourages & promotes both education and healthy lifestyles. In 2010, AOS was the proud recipient of the President’s Council Fitness, Sports and Nutrition Award for its mission in aiding the fight against childhood obesity and other related diseases. In 2012, AOS has grown to 7 different states offering services to over 1,200+ individuals nationwide with national recognition by Fox News Latino, MTV Triue Life: I’m a Stepper, Univision-Accesso Total, Despierta America, Latina Magazine and Famous Footwear. Born & raised in the Bronx, New York by Dominican-Puerto Rican parents, she has created a curriculum to be taught both in English and Spanish with the hopes of bridging the educational gap within inner city and underprivileged communities.STEM – Imagine learning mathematics while you dance and not realizing it? Well its possible and it has been created. In 2006, Art of Stepping Founder Jessica ‘REMO’ Saul, focused on creating stepping into an art form using core fundamentals that evolved to decoding every movement and beat to create original choreography. The goal was to embrace and create fundamentals in which everyone who has interest in learning, perform and embrace the art of stepping was welcomed. Based on this idea, the birth of the REMO SYSTEM was established. The system was created utilizing Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Vitruvian Man as a symbolic basis by which each letter of the alphabet, representing a given movement, was given a number of counts based on the movement that it creates. The system has allowed AOS to send written choreography throughout the entire world without visual presentation. Since its public launch, AOS has only released 7 codes to AOS Pro Team and After School Programs across the nation.  In addition the system delves into formations, levels, definition of beats and most importantly choreography. Remo system is trademarked and copyrighted securing that it is the ONLY Company in the world that can teach this curriculum.
