About Us


Jaclyn Carol's Dance Academy has been a premier dance school in WNY for over a decade! Started in 2007 by Jackie Dimino and Shari Palmer, JCDA is an inclusive, student-focused studio teaching proper dance technique through routines, games, exercises, warm-ups, workshops, videos and more.

Our students gain so much more than just a dance education - or just learning a dance routine. We have a long record of instilling confidence, coordination, and teamwork skills in a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Our teachers are truly some of the best in our region - many with teaching degrees, all with multiple certifications and years of experience working with kids of all ages and learning styles. 

  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 between September and June, with special workshops and camps all year long!
