Our family cannot recommend Not Just Dance highly enough! Our two boys are now in their third production at NJD, and out of all of the other extracurricular activities they have participated in, NJD is their hands-down favorite. Their first year at NJD was marked by the beginning of the COVID pandemic, and we have been so impressed with how the studio has adapted through virtual classes to a safe re-opening and numerous shows. Dawne and her staff’s careful attention to the CDC guidelines and best practices have given us the confidence to send our kids back to the studio for classes and performances, and the classes have provided our kids with much-needed support from a mental health perspective. As parents, we know that childhood is a short but critical time for development and growth. It is also an opportunity to discover your passion and find a group of friends that give you a sense of belonging and accomplishment. We are so grateful that our boys have found a community of talented, caring, and fun teachers and kids, and a program that is designed to build not only their skills as actors but as confident and compassionate human beings, all while having a great time.

I don’t want to recommend Not Just Dance to you, because if I do, you will want to send your kids there, and then my kids might not be able to get into the incredible classes and shows that they have available. Seriously though, if you are reading this, then you are a high-quality, conscientious parent looking for the perfect theatre program for your child(ren). You need not look any further than Not Just Dance (NJD). NJD is a truly unique, holistic, and compelling musical theatre learning experience for all school-age children. If there was an Organic, Non-GMO, Whole Foods brand of musical theatre education – NJD would be it.  My wife and I homeschool our two girls, so we are deeply intentional about what our children learn and experience as part of their upbringing. When it comes to their education, we spare no expense to give them the highest quality education possible. We want them to be well-rounded human beings, and we also want them to have exposure to opportunities that weren’t available to us when we were growing up. We live in a weird world, and in even weirder times, so we are also deeply concerned about the

It has almost been a year since they first auditioned for this show, and boy what a year! When quarantine hit the wonderful ladies of their theater quickly switched to an online format, so they could keep rehearsing and be ready for the day they could put on Willy Wonka.  And that day is TODAY (three months later)!! It won’t be a normal show and Lord knows I wish our family could be here. But we are so proud of these two and all their friends in the cast and crew. For both Ty and Emmy, NJD is a second home, and I’m sure many of you feel the same way.

Thank you for another wonderful show! Maddy had so much fun working on Aladdin Jr and we loved seeing her the happiest she’s been since the beginning of this pandemic. As always, it’s amazing to see what can be accomplished in just 2 weeks. The casting, set and choreography were all so well done. I know it’s been such a challenging time for your business and just want you to know that you make a difference in the community.

Shout out to Not Just Dance, the children’s/teen performing arts studio that has nurtured all three of our kids since 2016. They were 11 days away from opening weekend for A Chorus Line (high school edition) when the pandemic closures started. Meeting virtually for weeks, then outside for a few rehearsals, they pulled off a weekend of great performances, **reblocking about half the show in the last week** to make sure the actors could be as socially distanced as possible. Students were singing and dancing with masks when rehearsing and the staff got permission for a virtual ticketing option from the licensing group to keep in-person audiences small, separated and safe. It was glorious to see Molly on stage one more time before she heads to college, and all the middle and high schoolers on that stage powered through a challenging situation and made sweet musical lemonade from sour-virus lemons. The staff at NJD is one-of-a-kind for making this work! “What I Did For Love” indeed.
