What Others Say About Us

“Absolutely the best in Waco! I love that you all don’t just teach dance, but you also teach: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Carrie YoungParent of dancer Carrigan Young

“We love JSOD because the instructors are not only dedicated to teaching excellent technique, but more than that, they are dedicated to loving our girls and making sure that God is glorified in every step and in every dance.”

Gretchen GibsonParent of dancer Kate Gibson

“The office is impeccably organized in terms of online communication and prompt responses to questions. The teachers are very professional. Especially appreciated is Natalie’s leadership to the students of Company, teaching a strong work ethic and a no-tolerance policy for negativity about other dancers, including other studios.”
