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.
Our Hip Hop and School for Excellence classes perform in both our annual Winter Concert/ Hip Hop Show weekend as well as our annual year end Recital.
JLDC is proud to present our 5th annual HIP HOP SHOW, featuring JLDC hip hop students and guest performers.
JLDC is proud to present our 46th Annual Spring Recitals. These presentations help to develop our students’ poise and a sense of achievement.
JLDC is proud to present our 22nd Annual Winter Concert, featuring students of the School for Excellence. This performance is a celebration of the artistic achievement of performers from the Dancers’ Excel Program, students who have been working diligently to master a varied repertoire of dance styles and forms.
As we say farewell, SeniorSPEAK gives our graduates the spotlight and allows them to express themselves to parents, family, friends and fellow dancers. SeniorSPEAK is a special presentation followed by a graduation ceremony and a reception held at the opening of recital weekend in the Art Gallery at Regis College.
JLDC presented our students live, in-person on-stage at Regis College for our annual 2021 Spring recitals…picking up right where we left off, on the stage we call home!
In Winter 2021 when theater venues were still closed for performances, we transformed our Studio 4 into a recording studio and once again made JLDC history by filming our Winter Concert and Hip Hop Shows which debuted online one week later for our entire community to enjoy. Please enjoy some clips from our 2021 Winter Concert weekend!
In the Spring of 2020, when we could not be together, we still found a way to DANCE TOGETHER! Please enjoy some highlights from our 2020 virtual recital, DANCE ON!
