She followed her passion for performance and became a member of the first team of Chiefettes for the Kansas City Chiefs. To further her experience, Jann trained with Shirley Marley and was mentored by the incomparable Gus Giordano.   In 1978,  Jann debuted Wynn Twins School of Dance, her Christian rooted dance studio located in Raytown, Missouri. Her exceptional dance team has achieved the honor of National Champions since 1983 from Dance America.

Pamela Hook has been a teacher at Wynn Twins School of Dance for over 30 years. She began dancing as a child, and has had the good fortune to make dance her career, and her life. Pamela received her early training at various studios throughout Missouri. She danced her way through high school musicals, talent shows, and various pageants, culminating with the
Miss America's Miss Missouri Pageant in 1974. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in dance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1978, where she trained under Tatiana Dokoudovska, Winifred Widener, Shirley Weaver, Tom Land, and Claudia Edwards. Pamela danced in the Moulin Rouge Theatre at Worlds of Fun for two seasons, danced at Starlight Theatre in the 'Blackstone Magic Show' and 'Desert Song', and was also a Kansas City Chiefette. Pamela started teaching for Jann at Wynn Twins in 1981. In 1986 she moved to Orlando, Florida with her family. She taught dance at a local studio until 1988, when she was
cast in the Diamond Horseshoe Revue at Walt Disney World as a dancer and singer, a role that she filled for the subsequent four years. She also danced at Rosie O'Gradys at Church Street Station and in various convention shows. In 1992 Pamela returned to Kansas City and Wynn
Twins, where she has had the privilege of teaching and mentoring hundreds, if not thousands of aspiring young dancers in the ensuing twenty-six years. Outside the studio Pamela enjoys being a photographer and a doting grandmother. "One of my favorite things is watching the
expressions on the faces of the little ones as they dance their first recital."
