Our Shows are total quality family entertainment. They are safe, well organized logistically, from our backstage mother system, to the professional stage crew, to the theater, without disturbance for parents and family to enjoy a pleasant evening in the arts. Students showcase the professionalism that has been installed at the Academy through lectures and briefing in theatrical etiquette and appreciation.
Finally, we give our students the true meaning of performing. They love to perform in our shows, enhanced by props, backdrops and many more special effects. Most importantly, through our shows we focus on developing self-confidence, positive attitudes and good work ethics.
We believe that our youngest dancers deserve the very best instruction, which is why our instructors teach the most advanced classes as well as the 2-6 year old dancers. Many studios have their youngest and most inexperienced teachers training their very young dancers, but we believe starting out on an excellent foundation is the proper way to train a dancer.
Long term goals are the focus at JDM. Our goal for the dancers at JDM School of Dance is to provide an education in dance that will yield a well-rounded, balanced dancer capable of performing multiple styles of dance. For dancers who wish to become professional dancers, a well-rounded education is essential in gaining acceptance into a four year university or a professional dance company.
Julie and her staff unite under one common goal: to provide professional, fun training in all the disciplines of dance.
