Welcome to James Dance and Performing Arts Center
A strong commitment to artistic integrity taught in a positive and nurturing atmosphere! Join us, and the entire staff, in our celebration of the James Dance & Performing Arts Centers 52nd season of dance, acting and vocal education excellence.
Welcome to the JDPAC World! Our Mission Statement: To guide, educate, and inspire students who enter our doors in the highest standards of dance, acting and vocal education. We teach more than dance steps! Our goal is to train not only brilliant dancers, singers and actors, but also to encourage Leadership, Humanity, Respect, Loyalty and Tolerance.
Our dedicated staff and professional faculty are unsurpassed. All instructors are fully qualified educators and professionally experienced dancers, singers and actors.
Our beautiful facility is ‘state-of-the-art’! All dance studios are air-conditioned and have raised hardwood floors – a must for the serious dancer!
We also have an observation area for parents to observe their child’s progress. The JDPAC student lounge allows dancers to eat, study or just relax between classes.
James Dance & Performing Arts Center is home to the nationally ranked James Performance Team, ages 5-18. These dancers, singers and actors perform, attend competitions, and are exposed to educational workshops. Our Performance Team is an internationally renowned performing company with many awards including ‘Best Studio’, ‘Best Choreography’ and numerous overall awards in Jazz, Tap, Lyrical and Musical Theatre. Our Performance Team has performed on national T.V. and in Australia, Italy, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Hawaiian Islands. They also have preformed aboard the Costa Classica Cruise Line and the SS Independence, as well as for the Cleveland Crunch, The Scrappers, Kenny Rogers and ESPN TV.
If you want to dance or perform for fun, dance or perform for development and fitness or dance or perform for professional work, LOOK NO FURTHER! Whatever your goals, we can help you achieve them! Dance your way to a happy body and a healthy life!
