For more than 35 years, North Jefferson Academy of Dance (NJAD) has been serving Gardendale, AL and the surrounding communities. We teach all levels of ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, hip-hop, dance team prep, and baton. We accept students ages 3 years – 18 years of age for our classes. We are a conservative, non-competitive dance studio with an emphasis on technique, strengthening, and encouragement. All of our instructors are qualified beyond simply having taken dance – they have a special love for young people and the art of dance. For the safety of your dancer, all of our studio rooms have top-grade, sprung, dance floors.
