Ballet Classes for Pre-Schoolers, Children, Teens and Adults

Classical ballet is a formal style of dance with origins that date as far back as the 16th century. In Europe and other parts of the world, each region has their own history and stylistic interpretation of the movement. However, classical ballet itself is typically defined by free-flowing and precise movements, tightly structured choreography and emotional storytelling.

You won’t be disappointed I am a student of 28 years and a mum with sons who love the dance, fun and friendships


Amazing dance studio. My 3 children dance at Jody's... my son and two daughters. My daughters especially love to dance. This school teaches superior technique while having fun. Jody's attention to detail when teaching technique is really something. Why go anywhere else. Hands down best studio in the area.


I can highly recommend JMDC, my daughter has danced here for 5 years. The teaching is to a professional quality with a fantastic focus on technique, all while being fun and making great friendships. The end of year concerts are amazing and I especially like the age appropriateness of the routines and costuming.


Can’t speak highly enough about JMDC. Exceptional attention to technique and a highly professional teaching staff. Their end of year performances are second to none. The ladies tap class is one of my most favourite hours of the week. Great workout, loads of fun and a wonderful group of ladies.


The level of professionalism, dedication, commitment and enthusiasm of the JMDC teachers is first class! Our daughter has loved learning and growing with the wonderful support of the JMDC family. Highly recommend to others!
