We have taken many precautions to allow for greater social distancing and cleaning/disinfecting at JDC in preparation for the time when we are again able to gather in small groups. Some of these precautions include:
new touchless faucet and soap dispensers in the restroom
touchless hand sanitizers
disinfectant wipe dispensers in each studio
studio floors marked so that dancers have their own space with 6 feet between dancers & limited enrollment
marked spaces in the studios for dancer bags
marked spaces outside each studio for dancers as they arrive
Please review our Health and Safety Policies for Summer 2020.
Returning students should register for the same level classes as they were enrolled in during Spring 2020 (see prerequisites) or check at the desk for individual recommendations. Recommendations for Fall placement will be mailed with the new Academic Year schedule in early July.
New students: Please contact us to schedule a placement appointment if you are interested in classes above Level 1 or Beginner. After the placement appointment, we will contact you to let you know what classes/levels would be appropriate for your child. There is no fee for evaluation in one genre during available current group classes. The private evaluation fee is $60/hour.

JDC does follow a dress code for all classes.
The full dress code is available on our Dress Code page and on the posters at the studio. The summer dress code for Ballet is slightly relaxed: dancers may any solid color leotard instead of their Academic Year leveled colors. (No prints, stripes, sequined, or jeweled leotards or shorts are permitted). Dancers may be not be allowed to participate in class if they are not in dress code at the discretion of the instructor or director.
DANCE SHOES MUST NOT BE WORN OUTDOORS. EVER. Including hip hop sneakers!!
Leotards, shoes (except Hip Hop), tights, and booty shorts are available in our boutique
Fresh, clean dancewear should be worn each day - all ages.
Proper hygiene is essential in all aspects of life. It is very hard to approach a student or parent about a lack of cleanliness or foul body odor. However, in a dance studio where activities induce sweat and dancers are moving throughout the space, odors can become a terrible distraction and an embarrassment for the dancer should a classmate be insensitive and say something aloud. To avoid this, please be sure dancewear - especially leotards and tights - is laundered after each wearing. Hair should be clean and pulled back properly, feet should be clean, and deodorant should be a consideration for all students age 9 and up. Reapply deodorant after school/before dance class.
Please let the studio know if your dancer is sick or will not be in attendance by calling the studio or emailing email@example.com. We do record absences in advance if you know you have a future conflict.
Please do not send your dancer in if they are too sick to dance - they may not “just watch”.
If your dancer has had a fever in the last 24 hours, they may not be in the studio.
PUNCTUALITY POLICY: Tardiness disrupts class, causes students to miss warm up and material, and disturbs the focus and flow for the instructor. Students who are continuously tardy to class will not be allowed to enter the studio once class has begun.
