Since 1984, June Taylor’s School of Dance has been dedicated to providing excellent dance training to students starting at age three. Under the direction of internationally acclaimed June Taylor-Dixon, our R.A.D. accredited faculty nurture the talent of each individual student as they grow to reach their fullest potential. Students are given the opportunity to perform and grow in their self-expression, confidence, and love for dance in a personal, positive, and professional environment.

At the end of each school year, JTSD produces a full-length children’s classical ballet which gives the children the experience of performing in a large-scale story ballet. In 2021, students were given the opportunity to perform in a video-recorded RAD Ballet Demonstration. Pre-professional students also get the opportunity to audition for Northwest Dance Theatre, a non-profit dance company directed by June Taylor-Dixon established in 1988 which performs several times throughout the year in the greater Portland area, including seven performances of The Nutcracker.
