Academy Difference

The

Jaclyn Carol's Dance Academy is not just another dance studio. We are constantly investing in our students, staff and facilities to bring your child the best education experience possible. 

Our teachers understand the benefits of comprehensive warm-ups to prepare our students for safe movement, while also instilling fundamentals of healthy movement, strength building, and conditioning the body for good health far beyond the classroom. 

STREGNTH

CONFIDENCE

 Learning a new dance move or routine takes time and practice. Your child will learn new skills through proper technique in a safe environment and see themselves succeed with work. This sense of capability and accomplishment helps a child feel more confident - a critical piece of childhood and life-long development.

Family is the most important thing in the world to us. We have worked hard to make our studio culture like one big crazy family. Our staff is our family, our students are our family, you are our family. In an age of bullying and rampant social pressures, family is not an important thing, it is everything. JCDA students have a village of kids and adults who love them exactly how they are.

FAMILY

EQUIP

Investing in our students means first investing in our incredible teachers. Our staff undergoes regular career development training, retreats, and workshops run by internationally accredited organizations. All of this helps us better serve you, and better teach our students. 

Our Story

  Jaclyn Carol's Dance Academy opened in 2008 in Niagara Falls, NY. We shared a small storefront with a community theater group in the Summit Park Mall. We had only 9 students. Our dance family has continually grown with us through 4 expansions. We are so blessed!

 

  We offer classes in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theater, HipHop, Pointe, Acro, Break Dancing, Contemporary, All-Boys Hip-Hop, Competition, and Modern Dance for all age levels and technique levels, including many ADULT CLASSES, between September and June!

 

  Our 5,000 square foot facility in North Tonawanda features four large instruction studios. Each studio features full wall mirrors, wood flooring, and state-of-the-art sprung dance floors designed to protect the joints of our dancers as they move. Our entire building is air conditioned by three roof top air units to keep our students and staff comfortable and muscles safe all year round. All of our staff have extensive dance and teaching experience and have trained with industry professionals from around the world.

 

  Our dance studio is also unique in that we have a large parent lounge with a HDTV, large couch, and several large arm chairs for those who choose to wait for their student - you can wait in comfort! Our studio also features a cafe area called "The Snack Barre" where students and guests can purchase snack items such as bottled water, Gatorade, coffee, chips, fruit snacks, apples, and much more all at a low price. Enjoy complimentary wifi from anywhere in our studio. Located in Meadowbrook Square Plaza with ample parking for over 200 cars, our neighbors include Balance Yoga of WNY, The Pizza Shack, and Subway - to name only a few!

 

  Jaclyn Carol's Dance Academy offers lessons weekly during the year, working toward our annual end-of-the-year recital. After their performance, the students enjoy a picnic where we can all celebrate their achievements!

 

  We achieve excellence by teaching thorough technique in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Students at our Academy are motivated to achieve their best because our teachers encourage them in positive, confidence-building ways! All of our staff members have trained with numerous nationally and internationally known performers. Our entire staff is also CPR certified.
