Our Story

JSDance was established in 1997 by Brisbane dance teacher, Jackie Meaney. She saw a need for a boutique studio ensuring quality training but a focus on enjoyment and balanced approach to dance in students’ lives. In 2020, employee and long time student Joanne Horner continues to direct JSDance into the future with these solid philosophies. 

We promote the importance of dance teachers being qualified to work with young growing bodies and minds and this should be considered a top priority in choosing the right dance studio for your family. JSDance is celebrating 25yrs operating in the same location, which demonstrates stability & commitment in a competitive industry. All staff are carefully selected to ensure they contribute to the positive values and policies that we work hard to deliver;

  • To foster a love of dance 
  • To encourage and support students to grow and develop through their relationships with their teachers, friends and themselves
  • We are proud to adopt an inclusive class policy
  • Dance is a team sport
  • Students learn the value of working together, training together and performing together in a non-competitive environment· 
  • Identify that students learn at a different pace to each other and therefore our class structures and teaching methods reflect this

“Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive environment to teach dance and grow your childs confidence, resilience and love of dance. Our community of professional and nurturing staff, as well as our students, show leadership in developing these skills through the balance of life and dance.”
