Testimonials


It always amazes me to watch the students of JNPA perform on stage. It's not just the art of dancing that the teachers of JNPA have instilled in them but the sheer joy I see on their faces as they are performing. JNPA teaches every dancer discipline, an appreciation for the art of dance, technique and an overwhelming sense of self confidence. My daughter has transformed in the past three years at JNPA and for that I am thankful.

There's no other dance studio like JNPA. It's by far the BEST studio on Long Island. Miss Jenn and Miss Katie have a heart of gold. They treat your kids like their own. They are the BEST dance teachers out there. They also have the best ballet teacher Miss Claudia. She's the best of the best.
Lisa Denaro, JNPA Company Mom
As an alumni, JNPA is truly the place to be. I came here in the inaugural season as a freshman in high school, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made! Ms Jen, along with the rest of the incredible faculty really takes the time to get to know each and every dancer and pushes them to be the best they can be. Not only will you get some of the best dance training in Long Island, you will also learn lifelong lessons that you can take with you beyond the studio. With a friendly environment and a stellar staff there’s no other place I’d rather call my “home away from home” other than JNPA!

JNPA is the best studio on Long Island!! My oldest daughter danced at several other studios, but the improvement that she has made since starting her training at JNPA 4 years ago has been remarkable. The level of technical training that she has received at JNPA is beyond compare. I am so pleased with JNPA that I registered my younger daughter this year. I have already seen tremendous growth in her since September! Not only has her dancing improved, but she has also become more outgoing, confident and social as a result of the environment at JNPA. The teachers at JNPA are skilled, professional, and 100 percent dedicated to their students. They have created a friendly and supportive environment for all of the students at the studio. JNPA is truly a family that I am so happy to be a part of.
Jen Rowell, JNPA Dance Company Mom
Four years ago, we walked up the stairs to the JNPA dance studio and have never looked back; we have never been happier. We walked into a dance family who welcomed us with open arms; not very common among dance studios at all. Miss Jen is an amazing teacher, owner, person and friend who truly loves her students and their parents. She has taught my daughter more about dancing in the four years we have been here than my daughter was taught for the seven prior years at another studio. Miss Katie is an amazing teacher as well; her talent and love for her students goes beyond any measure. And Miss Claudia, the ballet teacher, has taught my daughter to love ballet. Not once in the years that we have been here, has my daughter complained about going to ballet; Miss Claudia’s knowledge and love of teaching her kids is a force to be reckoned with. I highly recommend JNPA to anyone who is considering enrolling their child in a dance school; whether it is competitively or for recreation. The love that is bestowed upon all of the children by Miss Jen is immeasurable and I promise you that the experiences you and your child share here will be a positive one.

When my three daughters walked in to JNPA they never wanted to leave. They were immediately treated like family. They have grown and improved so much in just their short time here, and I know they will continue to do so. Ms. Jen and Ms. Katie, along with their staff, do an amazing job instilling confidence in each and every girl they teach. I am so happy we ended up at JNPA!

JNPA is more than a dance school, it's a true technique school where I have personally watched my daughter grow exponentially due to the hard work, dedication, talent and unmatched knowledge of the Directors and staff. They have an unbelievable ability to help your child push pass his or her limits and evolve year after year. Their creativity and choreography truly stands out and is what sets them apart. We are so proud and honored to be a part of this team.

Judy & Jules Bacalles, JNPA Dance Company Family
JNPA is not just an after school activity or a regular dance school. JNPA became a second home to all the dancers. The support, charisma, and professionalism that JNPA spreads makes it so motivating for us dancers to become eager to learn. The brilliant teachers, staff, dancers, and families make JNPA so unique.
Adianna Valentine, JNPA Dance Company Dancer
I’ve been dancing at JNPA for 7 years now since before there was even a studio and we were dancing at World Gym. Miss Jen, Miss Katie and the rest of the staff have made me the dancer I am today and I am so great full for each and every one of them. JNPA is not just a dance studio it is a big family for which I would never trade the world for. Miss Jen is one of a kind and you can’t get anyone better than her to teach you how to dance because she is the best of the best at what she does. Without JNPA I wouldn’t be the dancer I am today.
Gianna Denaro, JNPA Dance Company Dancer
JNPA started out as a dance school but quickly became a second home, and everyone at JNPA quickly became family. You are always welcomed with a friendly smile and the feeling that you are in the right place. The love, support, and dedication that is put in by all staff members, dancers, and families is truly unbelievable. Each student feels a sense of importance when they walk into JNPA. On top of the amazing dance education the students are also taught how to always behave professional and humble. Joining JNPA was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am so thankful for every moment I get to spend with this amazing dance family. There are countless memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Erin Mosier, JNPA Alumni
6 1/2 years ago my daughter Jenna and I made a very big decision join JNPA after leaving a dance studio where she was dancing since she was three years old. I have to say It was the best decision that we both ever made for her and for me as well. From the moment walked in through the doors of Jnpa and I met Jennifer for the first time I knew it was the best decision that we ever made. Not only did she make us feel warmly welcomed and comfortable, she also made us feel like we were a part of her studio from the first day that she opened her doors seven years ago. Jennifer has a heart of gold and loves every single child. It doesn’t matter how talented you are. What matters to her most is showing the love that she has for every single child that enters her studio. The expertise and talent that she offers to each individual child you will not receive anywhere else. The quality of the training that our children receive is top notch. I have to say that your child would not get the training JNPA offers from any other studio on Long Island.
Laura Anglim, JNPA Dance Company Mom
JNPA is a studio that is in a category of its own! My daughter has been dancing since she's two and a half! She has grown tremendously in her technique and her stage presence! At JNPA the teachers are so professional and dedicate their time immensely towards their students. My daughter has created so many friendships at JNPA over the past 5 years! It's truly an unbelievable studio that is full of stars!:)
