Jenny's Dance Centre is home to the award-winning JDC Competition Company, a nationally-recognized group of pre-professional students, and the Hip Hop Competition Team. The studio offers programs including our academic year program, which runs from September through June, and culminates with our fantastic recital; our 6 week summer program from June through early August; and our mini intensive with master instructors in late August.

The faculty and staff at Jenny's Dance Centre are committed...
Committed to Excellence | With over 50 years combined teaching, performing, and administrative experience, we are dedicated to developing talent at both traditional and pre professional levels. We provide every student with a solid foundation for dance, and help every student discover his/her own strengths in order to reach his/her own personal potential.
Committed to Inspire | We are all students of dance, performance and life! Through our shared learning experiences, we strive to inspire our students and to be inspired by others.
Committed to the JDC Family | Together we learn, grow, strive, and achieve, placing the highest value on respect~respect for each other and ourselves.
After 10 years teaching on the North Shore, Jenny Campbell opened JDC in 1997. More than 20 years later, JDC has established itself as a premier dance instruction school, providing students with superior well-rounded training, as well as solid tools for discipline, time management, teamwork and goal setting. Jenny has become a noted choreographer, instructor, trainer and mentor, fostering a family atmosphere at the dance centre. The staff, trained in part by Jenny herself, upholds the same philosophies implemented when the dance centre opened~offer exceptional instruction, inspire growth and personal achievement among the students, provide constructive feedback and encouragement, and cultivate a welcoming environment for all JDC families.
