Thank you for choosing North Jefferson Academy of Dance. We are excited to start a new dance season and cannot wait to have your dancers with us. We will nurture their love for dance in a caring, conservative, Christian environment. All of our instructors are qualified beyond simply having taken dance and have a special love for young people and the art of dance. Our studios all have top-grade, sprung dance floors for the safety of your dancer.

We ask that you fully read the registration class schedule information regarding these classes to avoid being moved or missing a spot entirely.
