Miss Janelle and Miss Dena grew up dancing together and co-directed competitive dance for many years- these two make an incredible team. Miss Janelle is a multi-genre teacher who connects with and pulls the very best from all skill levels and all ages of dancers.

How To Be Successful In Miss Janelle’s Classes

BREAKDANCE, HIP HOP

Hi, Dancers! Please arrive 5 minutes early to change into your DEDICATED hip hop shoes and begin stretching. Please, please, please do not wear your hip hop shoes out into the world. They are for the studio only! I will meet you at the door to dismiss the class before and invite you in. Find a cubby to put your bag and water bottle in. Please wear sweats or workout leggings to class to protect your legs during floor work and a top that will cover your skin when doing tricks, such as handstands. We STRONGLY recommend ladies wear a leotard under sweats- it will protect your modesty when we are in our inversions.

LYRICAL, STRETCH & STRENGTH

Hi, Dancers! Please arrive 5 minutes early to begin stretching. I will meet you at the door to dismiss the class before and invite you in. Find a cubby to put your bag and water bottle in. Arrive prepared by dressing in a leotard and tights (convertible, stirrup or footless are best for these classes), with hair secured. Lyrical students will need jazz shoes and bare feet. Stretch & Strength students will need a towel and a pair of socks. Please come to class ready to work hard and sweat! 🙂
