Dance: Exercise for Body & Mind

The Weinstein JCC School of Dance offers an exciting learning environment for students of all skill levels. Our program gives dancers the opportunity to learn and perform various types of professional dance in a group setting with the option of a dance recital each spring.

Dance Classes

For our instructional dance classes, there are two semesters and it is recommended students register for both (September–May). Taking both semesters gives the dancer the appreciation for the art and instills discipline while developing strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and memory. See below for all of our upcoming dance classes!
