Since 1984, June Taylor’s School of Dance has been dedicated to providing excellent dance training to students starting at 3 years of age. Under the direction of June Taylor-Dixon, our internationally acclaimed and Royal Academy of Dance accredited faculty are ambitious about what our students can achieve given the right training, encouragement, and opportunities.

At the end of each school year, JTSD produces a full-length children’s classical ballet. Giving the children the experience of performing in a large scale story ballet. Pre-professional students also get the opportunity to audition for Northwest Dance Theatre. A non-profit dance company directed by June Taylor-Dixon established 1988, which performs several times throughout the year, including 7 performances of The Nutcracker.




Dear June Taylor’s School of Dance Parents,

It is with great regret that I am having to reverse my decision to stay open for in-studio classes for the next two weeks.  Governor Kate Brown issued a new mandate today, November 18, restricting all indoor sports and physical activities.  I have made several calls to both the Oregon Health Authorities and OSHA trying to confirm which category our school falls into.  Unfortunately, neither organization could give me a definitive answer.  I have therefore made the decision to close the school until December 2nd for the safety of our students.

During this time we will be offering Zoom classes and more information will be sent out to individual levels.

I’m so sorry I have to write this email.  Hopefully, after Thanksgiving, we can be together again.  Please stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

June Taylor-Dixon
