Joy’s School of Dance

Providing exceptional dance training in a Christian environment

JSOD has shared the “joy” of dance with the Waco community for more than 40 years! Owner Natalie George grew up dancing and teaching at JSOD under Joy Burkhart and purchased the studio in 2009. The studio has expanded to two locations and more than 550 students due to its exceptional staff and passion for dance! JSOD teaches all ages in many dance styles including ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern and musical theater. JSOD offers specialized classes like Mommy and Me ballet, Dance/Drill team prep, All Boys’ Hip Hop and Open Dance Classes for adults and more. JSOD accepts online registration through December 15 or until classes are closed! Come see our Dance Company Christmas Show on December 10 and our end of year Dance Recital Shows on June 9 – 10 all at the Midway Performing Arts Center!
