At JSD, we believe that every child brings something unique to our studio. Our staff instills personal confidence, self-esteem, and technique and also helps each student reach their highest potential in the art of dance.
Our philosophy is "Never say I can’t, always say I’ll try." We want our students leaving feeling good about themselves and have gained a sense of confidence that they can take with them through life in whatever career they choose to pursue.
JSD has a class for the student who just wants to take class once a week for fun and exercise - or - for the more serious dancer. Click here to view our list of available classes.
We have an annual recital in June as well as local performances and workshops including The Pulse choreographers from TV's "So You Think You Can Dance", The Rockette Experience from Radio City Music Hall, Boscov Thanksgiving Day Parade, and The Nets Basketball City Dancers, Dizzy Feet Dance Video Contest Winners
Joann's School of Dance also has a nationally-ranked Dance Team. Our Team recently won Rising Star National Dance Championship along with over sixty placements and special awards.
