Thank You

Thank you to everyone for your co-operation as we seek to bring back a little bit of normality in these tough times for us all. As always, the safety of all members of the Jowett Dance Family is a top priority, especially as we adjust to the "new normal" during this transition period. Your help and sensibility is greatly appreciated during this time to allow us to keep our students and their parents/guardians, teachers and volunteer staff safe and happy as they can once again follow their passions and express themselves through Dance and Performing Arts. We are very much all in this together!
