Dance Classes & Programming

Member & Non Member, Ages 2 – Adult

The Performing Arts Department of the Jewish Community Center strives to impart the joy and discipline of dance through a well-rounded program of high caliber dance instruction. Classes in pre-ballet, ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, and modern dance are offered in a variety of levels with emphasis on technique, musicality, body awareness and the development of self-expression through movement.

Classes are taught in a caring, positive atmosphere by a faculty of qualified, experienced instructors. Limited class enrollment ensures individual personalized attention. The JCC houses one of the finest dance facilities in the area with fully equipped studios, a large theater and live piano accompaniment for ballet classes.

In addition to classes, students may participate in a variety of special programs: choreographic workshops and performance opportunities with local and nationally recognized artists, field trips to area dance events, dance films and special lectures. The dance program is open to JCC members and non-members. JCC members receive discounted rates and other benefits. If you are interested in joining the JCC, please contact Member Services at (402) 334-6426.
