Our Story



JSDA was formed in 2013, giving students the opportunity to learn a variety of dance styles; Street Dance, Contemporary, Acro, Free Tap and Musical Theatre.  Opening their doors in Chesham, JSDA offers a fun and relaxed approach to dance whilst still upholding the correct technique and discipline in each style.   We believe in students learning the art of dance and not pushing them into exams or events, instead letting them enjoy movement, but help them to flourish should they wish to pursue a career in dance or the performing arts.

JSDA is proud to be affiliated with ISTD, Acrobatic Arts and iD-Company
