Many Lasting Friendships

Just a quick update on alumna Amelia Bryan. She will be graduating from MIT this June with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a concentration in Biomedical Devices and will then be heading in August to Stanford Medical School. We attribute much of her determination, perseverance, and discipline, which were part of the framework of her successes, to experiencing high quality dance instruction, performance opportunities, and the oh-so-necessary development of time management skills that were provided by training at June Taylor’s School of Dance. Dance truly transforms the body, mind, and heart. Thank you Miss June!

After enrolling my daughter in several other dance schools, we chose JTSD and could not be happier.  The Royal Academy of Dance syllabus offers careful stepwise instruction with attention to technical detail as well as the safety and health of the children.  JTSD provides dedicated, reliable instructors as well as an environment that fosters discipline and an appreciation for dance.  Most importantly, my daughter loves coming to the studio and has made many lasting friendships.

I danced seriously at June Taylor’s for six years, and absolutely recommend it, not only to aspiring dancers, but also to adults who just want a chance to exercise and have fun. The environment is like a family, and the training and technique are excellent. I wouldn’t have danced anywhere else – my memories of the times I spent there are wonderful, and I still drop in and take adult class whenever I can.

Dear Miss June,

It has been a number of years since I have been your student, but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, not only for your kind encouragement and exceptional instruction, but also for the lifelong love of physical activity that my dance classes encouraged.

I was on of your first students when you opened your school which puts me just about 40 years of age.  Although I did not pursue dance after we moved from Oregon, I carried with me a love and respect for everything I had learned and for the discipline in general.  The ability to really hear music, good posture and poise, and the love of movement are all things that I loved while with you and I thank you for them ….. I looked you up on-line and was so pleased to see your beautiful web site!  How your school has grown ….. Heartfelt congratulations to you.  I wish my family lived closer so that my daughter (and sons!) could be your students.
