JPDC has been family to us. Our daughter has been dancing for two years and the studio is her second home. We love JPDC as they provide a dance education that focuses on the whole child and emphasizes community service, respect, positive role models, family and personal growth. We highly recommend JPDC! - Jen B
JPDC does "make a difference in the lives of children through the art of dance."
Our daughter attended for four years and Jody is one of the most professional people in this business. If you want an experience that is above and beyond, this is the place for your child. - Miranda H
Dance at JPDC has been a life-changing event for my son! He loves to learn from the talented and caring instructors and has learned to prepare and perform with the studio of dedicated performers.
The best part about being part of the JPDC is that he is learning to be a "team member" and is shown such great life skills such as "respect, self-control and perseverance."
I am so thrilled that my son is a part of such an incredible well-rounded experience and is learning the art of dance in such a loving, nurturing environment. - Pam K.
We are very glad that we found your studio. We're new this year to JPDC. Prior to this year, we had taken some classes at the ____ (good instruction, but class wasn't fun), ____ (didn't learn much), and a program at Neva's child care center (____, decent instruction, but horribly managed spring recitals). Neva has enjoyed this class so much; Kelly Slavin is an incredible instructor. I appreciate Kelly bringing a sense of fun! We were also extremely impressed with how well organized, efficient and enjoyable the Spring Recital was. As a parent of younger student, I appreciated the thoughtfulness of rehearsing the younger classes first. Finally, thank you for honoring the graduates. That was a very nice way to reinforce the importance of education for the younger girls. Thank you - Molly L.
My girls cannot wait until Wednesday of each week. They love their teacher and most of all what she has taught them. They did not have any of the skills prior to her instruction for their routine. Week after week, she was patient, encouraging and firm. They took her very serious. They practiced all the time and finally got it down. Thank you Jody for your studio, your teachers, and for who you are and your talent that you so willingly share with these little girls. - Angel C.
Jody Phillips has given me so many opportunities!!! I was about to quit dance when my other studio closed but when I came to Jody's I started having fun and loved dance!! A year ago never did I think I would be where I am today in dance and I owe that all to my family at JPDC!!!!!!! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me!!! - Breann V.
JPDC offers a great environment for kids to feel like they are a part of a team, that is supportive regardless of ability. Every time I watch my child dance, I am amazed with her improvement, which means the teachers are doing a great job. I also appreciate the conservative nature of the studio in costume and music choices--it is still fun for the kids, but never inappropriate.
We love JPDC! - Melissa S.
Jody, Melanie made the comment to me after the recital that she loves JPDC because all the girls she dances with are sooooooo nice - she has felt welcome & loved by everyone - you, her instructors, and her classmates & teammates - since the day she walked into the studio! She always looks forward to class and NEVER complains about going, even with her busy schedule! If she is happy, then I am happy - we love JPDC!!!! :-) - Karen S.
I chose JPDC for my girls because of the unique opportunities and variety of teachers and styles that are presented to the kids. The positive attitude of the studio and the appropriate costumes are also very important to our family. -Lori H.
I had thought about getting my daughter involved in dance. With 3 boys, I hadn't made time to check into nearby dance studios. Luckily my neighbor had her daughter enrolled in the Tuesday Stars class at 10:30 am. That fit perfectly into my schedule. Hadley loves her class and lets out a little "whoo hoo" every Tuesday morning when I tell her it's dance day. - Cindy B.
We have tried many different dance and gymnastics companies, but have finally found a home at JPDC because of the individual attention each child receives. Jody and her staff treat each dancer as if he/she is the only person in the room. They work hard to move each dancer to the next level. JPDC provides various forms of dance and many different opportunities to grow with weekend workshops and outside performers. Our daughter, Emma, has bloomed under Jody and her teachers. - Scott and Jennifer T.
