Special Studio Update in response to COVID-19

Dear Academy of Dance Family,

We just want to say Thank You again to everyone for being a part of our studio and continuing to stick with us during these hard and uncertain times.    

We anticipate being open for new students by June 8, 2020 for our Summer Session.   If you are interested in any of our Afternoon Summer Dance classes please visit our Summer Classes page for further details and schedule.

We will be continuing to utilize our AODJax Online for virtual classes.   For more detailed information on our Online class format, please email us at academyofdancejax@gmail.com.


We have set in place new procedures and guidelines to  follow to help ensure we are following the State mandated safety precautions,     Please remember our main concern is keeping the health and well being of  our students and staff at the forefront of our planning.

In  other news!  If your student is still interested in auditioning for  either our Dance company or Thespian troupe, there's still time!    Simply reply to this email requesting more information and we will be  happy to forward you everything you need to know.

In  closing, we pray all our AOD students and families are remaining safe  and healthy as well as embracing the good and happiness of family  togetherness amidst these trying days.

AOD Owner/Director
