Our Purpose

Our Purpose

Welcome to the Joyce Willett School of Dance! We are committed to providing the best possible training in a lively and enthusiastic environment. Our faculty is highly trained in their art and skilled in the virtues of patience, compassion and understanding. 

Whether an aspiring professional or a novice, we are dedicated to making DANCE a rewarding experience that will improve self discipline, self esteem and responsibility in a team environment. We want the dance experience to cast a positive glow on the future of all of our students. We are Austin's year-round dance school and we strongly encourage our students to take advantage of their full potential. 

We have an open door makeup policy to allow all of our students to attend extra classes in lieu of those missed for vacations or sick days. JWSD has been family owned and operated since 1982. We are members of the Texas Association of Teachers of Dancing and house Body Talk Dance Company, a professional company of young dancers.

We look forward to welcoming you and your dancer to our dance family!
