The JCC School of Dance program teaches children the technique, artistry, and discipline of dance in a cheerful and positive learning environment. Children develop a variety of transferable listening and learning skills in a classroom setting while being physically healthy and having fun!

Adults looking to learn a new hobby or dust off their old dance shoes are now welcome to join us for our Adult Dance Program offerings in Ballet and Tap. Classes range from beginner to advanced and are a great way to wind down from a stressful day in a relaxed environment.
