The JSOD Dance Company is made up of highly talented and dedicated dancers. Dance company members must take classes in Ballet, Tap and Jazz and exhibit positive attitudes, good attendance and continual improving ability. These dancers are highly encouraged to attend the Texas Association Teachers of Dance (TATD) Convention every summer. In addition the company practices on Saturdays throughout the year and performs at numerous community events. Many of these dancers go on to pursue dance in college and beyond. JSOD Dance Company is by invitation only.
