In consultation with an Infectious Disease physician and following all State guidelines, we have made the necessary adjustments to our facilities and programming to safeguard our community in keeping with the high level of age-appropriate dance education you have come to expect at JLDC.

 

In addition to our school-wide safety measures, Playdance and Babydance classes will follow these additional protocols:

  • 8 student class maximum

  • One caregiver per child will be permitted into the classroom (masks required)

  • Social distance will be encouraged through developmentally appropriate, engaging activities

  • Dancers will receive a personal bag of props for the duration of the session

  • Dancers may wear any comfortable clothing or the traditional dress code

 

About the Classes

Our goal is that every student learn to dance in a fun, loving and supportive atmosphere! For our youngest dancers, who are learning so much about the world around them each day, we have tailored our age-appropriate curriculum to enhance their physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.

Our early education programs were developed with 45 years of experience to help children build confidence, inspire a sense of adventure and encourage artistic expression all while fostering a love of music and movement. Our dedicated, well-qualified faculty teach in a fun, safe and caring environment.

About this Program

The goal of Playdance is to foster a love of music and movement in your child. Using a large open dance space, fun props, a variety of popular songs and movement games and activities, your dancer will have fun using their imaginations while also developing classroom readiness. Playdance 1 is designed for dancers who prefer to participate WITH their caregiver. Over the course of the session, dancers will begin to work on independent participation at their own, gentle pace.
