At Joanne Langione Dance Center, we care, most of all that each and every student learn to dance in an atmosphere of love and support.
We adhere to our mission of creating a “community based school” 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 they dance simply for the joy of it.
Our students become leaders in the world of dance: professionally, intellectually and spiritually as performers, directors, choreographers and educators.
Every aspect of our program supports our core values of good training, work and fun. Our instructors constantly challenge students to hone their natural talents and encourage them to compete against their own sense of excellence.
Founded in 1976, JLDC is, by conviction a “school that creates the well-rounded, diverse dancer” with curriculum tailored to develop in our students proficiency and versatility. Building on a classical foundation, our students train in modern and contemporary peaking their intellectual curiosity, self-motivation and capacity for hard work. We encourage them to find their uniqueness and what dance means to them.
Much time is spent training but we believe that creating, composing and performing are important tool for our students to develop and discover talent.
Ours is a gathered community, in which students with different interests, talents and perspectives come to express themselves.
