Jill Listi Dance Studio has been a part of the Lafayette community for over 30 years and has over 300 years of combined, quality experience among the JLDS staff. JLDS has a very diverse group of instructors – those who have danced professionally throughout the country to those instructors who have owned and operated their own successful studios. All have the compassion, experience and drive needed to give your dancer the highest quality of education.

Jill Listi Dance Studio has trained dancers who are successful in the industry and who have gone on to continue their careers in New York, Los Angeles, Disney World and Europe (to name a few). Our students have performed numerous national winning routines as well as joining professional dance companies.

JLDS has 3 types of dancers – the non-competitive dancer, the elite dancer and the dance challenge dancer. Dance Challenge has been a part of the studio for the last 7 years. It is a class that was developed for any mentally or physically handicapped individual who wants to dance.

JLDS has joined forces with the tumbling company, C3 Cheer. These classes are directed by Caroline Strother, a specialist in tumbling and cheer.

From technical training combined with a fun and vibrant atmosphere, this studio provides it all. Jill Listi Dance Studio believes that hard work produces success. Dance training instills discipline in each student that will aid your daughter or son in facing all aspects of life. JLDS seeks excellence from all students, appropriate to their age level and interest. None of this can be accomplished without a cooperative and supportive effort from students, parents and staff.

Jill and her staff say the studio is the place for everyone. Thank you for your interest in our studio and remember – it’s so much more than just dance!
