Jan’s is a Place to Shine


Celebrating 40 years!


Jan’s School of Dance believes the gift of dance is a valuable choice and can be an important asset in all aspects of development.


Dance is an excellent exercise for the mind and body.


Dance is for Everyone!


Dance encourages large muscle movement and promotes greater joint mobility. It also improves muscle tone, spatial awareness, coordination and social interaction. Jan’s offers a dance class for students of all abilities on Fridays. Cost is $36 per month plus $15 per child annual registration fee. 


Complete the non-competition class registration form and come join the fun!
