Ella hops/skips/runs to the car after classes to tell me every new move from class! And then races in the house to perform them. She adores her fellow dancers, Ms. Melissa and all the other instructors! Such a kind, welcoming studio with the perfect amount of challenge with love. We feel like we found gold at JBDA!
Since day one I was welcomed with open arms. All students are expected to be kind and supportive of teammates. I was able to perform my first solo and it was such an amazing experience. The environment is one unlike any other studio. Melissa Camarata, owner and teacher at JBDA, has changed my life. I have grown more this year than I have in all of my six years dancing. Ms. Melissa and Ms. Laura work to make each child feel accepted and loved the moment they walk in the door. The studio has a no bullying policy that is strictly enforced. Dancing at Just Be Dance Academy not only teaches your child discipline and hard work, it also teaches children how to be good respectful people. I have not seen one child leave class without a smile upon their face. This studio is truly unlike any other. This is the first place I have really belonged and I wouldn’t change this experience for anything.
Being at Just Be this past year has completely changed me and put me back into the person I was before. I joined a little after the dance year started and Ms. Melissa embraced me into her studio with open arms. Never have I been in a studio that not only focuses on a dancer’s technique and how they perform, but also who the dancer is on the inside. She ensures that each dancer shines and can walk onstage or anywhere without an ounce of confidence in themselves missing. She won’t doesn’t stop until each and everyone of us has reached our full potential. I have had the absolutely amazing opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful studio and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the future.
