Thank you for joining us at our “Joy in the Journey” Recital 2018!

Thank you so much for joining us at our “Joy in the Journey” Recital! We have had such a wonderful year with our staff and our students preparing for this show. We wanted to expand on our theme of “Choose Joy” from last year and continue to challenge each other and our community to look for the joy, hope, peace, love and blessings in each of our shorter daily journeys as well as our longer journeys through life. Thank you for joining us on this dance journey this year! Joy comes when we continually praise God for what He has already done! Our JSOD Staff is honored and grateful to have the opportunity to serve our students in our community and we praise God for what He has already done in our studio and in the lives of our students.

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy! Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled joy! Psalm 126:3

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.”
