What Others Say About Us

“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.”

Julianne BestParent of dancer Katherine Best

“You cannot beat the level of training that students get at JSOD. But more important is the truly amazing staff here. I couldn’t hand pick better role models for my daughter. What a blessing they are!”
