Happy Thanksgiving from JFSOD! Classes will be held through Wednesday, 11/24 and the Studio will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday for the holiday. We are grateful that you share your dancers with us and we look forward to dancing into 2022.
Classes are back in-person with virtual opportunities...

Like the ballerina in the photo on the right, masks are required for ALL Students and Teachers in lessons. 
If your dancer is sneezing, coughing, or is sick, OR if someone in your household is under quarantine for a possible Covid-19 exposure, please keep them at home and we will find you a make up class.

We are celebrating an anniversary this year - We have been in the Shelbyville Road Studio 30 years, since August 1991, so Happy 30th Anniversary and Cheers to another 30 years! We have served families for 68 years with a personal touch and a family feel... Contact us to find a class for you or your dancer.

We are doing everything possible to make the studio a safe place for our students, staff, & families...and here's how in our new normal...

  1. REQUIRE parents, students and staff to stay home if they or anyone in their family is sick with a cough, cold or fever OR any family members are quarantined after being exposed to Covid-19.

  2. REQUIRE masks or face coverings during class by ALL dancers and teachers, persuant to CDC Guidelines and the Louisville Metro Department of Health. 

  3. Designated entry door and designated exit door to avoid crowded lobby and sidewalk.

  4. The lobby is closed - parents will drop off students at the entry door and parents remain outside as the dancers enter. At the end of class, dancers will be brought to the sidewalk through the exit door.

  5. Staggered starting and ending times for classes to avoid crowds and time for sanitizing between classes.

  6. Dancers and teachers are socially distanced in class. Class sizes are limited to 10 students per class with students spaced six-feet apart.

  7. We constantly clean high touch surfaces in the lobby, studios and restrooms.

  8. All students and staff must sanitize hands prior to entry and before leaving. 

  9. Dancers should bring their own water bottles to class. Water fountain open only for filling water bottles or cups.

  10. Temperature check of any student that appears to have a cough, cold, or symptoms of illness during class and call parents to pick up.

​      The creation of a dancer is the result of a long journey. Here, we offer dance opportunities to individuals looking for pre-professional training, exercise or just for fun. We offer a complete program for dancers of all ages.

     We believe dance is an art form through which persons develop and grow. It is our mission to facilitate that growth. Family-owned and operated for over 68 years, JoAnn and her teachers have taught dance to thousands of youngsters and those young at heart.
