School For Excellence

Our Company Tagline lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.


Much time is spent training but we believe that creating, composing and performing are important tools for our students to develop and discover talent. Dance is a performing art and as such, we encourage performance at every level of training. We adhere to our mission of educating our students to the many ways in which a proper dance education can inform their lives: creating life-long lovers of dance whether a student chooses to dance professionally or whether she dances for the simply joy of it. Family-friendly concerts given by our students throughout the year provide ample opportunity to hone technical and performance skills while developing in them a sense of pride and accomplishment.


Dance competitions create positive environments in which students can learn about themselves when they are managed well by discerning dance educators. Competition can help keep students on the ladder of progress in performance and technique while giving them confidence.  Competitions “naturally” teach students to “work as hard as they can to do the very best that they can”. At JLDC, students are selected to participate in competitions when they have reached a certain criteria.


Every aspect of our program supports our core values of good training, work and fun. Our teachers constantly challenge students to hone their natural talents and encourage them to compete against their own sense of excellence. Master classes outside the school allow students to compare themselves to others who are training in the same way at the same age. This benchmark serves to inspire students to acknowledge their achievements while committing to working even more diligently to reach their full potential. Exposure to different teaching methods motivates students to learn in new ways.

Cummunity Outreach

It is with great pleasure and pride that I write about the Joanne Langione Dance Center Student Outreach Programs where our goal is to enrich the lives of Newton’s youth and senior communities.

Outreach Program students perform annually at the Mayor’s New Year’s Day Open House, Newton School Fairs, Harvestfest, NSHS Spring Tertulia, NNHS Arts Showcase, Funtastic Fridays as well as Newton Main Library and Newton’s retirement communities.

JLDC’s ANNUAL FREE EVENTS include the Halloween “Dress up and Dance” Party, the Sugarplum Party, and the Pinkalicious Party.

If you have made a contribution to the JLDC Outreach in the past, please accept our thanks and may we ask for your continued support in maintaining and expanding these worthwhile child-centered events in the Newton community.

Thank you for your support!
