Thank you for helping make “Choose Joy” Recital 2017 a success!

When we were coming up with a theme and title for this year’s show(s), we truly wanted to pick something that was uplifting and delivered a clear and positive message. So we decided on “Choose Joy” – it’s simple yet so powerful at the same time. I am constantly amazed at the teachers in our studio for not only sharing their passion and talent for dance, but for also challenging our students to choose joy! We are grateful for the many blessings that God has bestowed upon us and are honored that we have the opportunity to serve in this community and continue spreading a positive message. To all of our hardworking students, their supportive families and friends, THANK YOU. We look forward to what next year will bring!

-Natalie George, Studio Director

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.”
