Over the next week, we will all be sending our little ones back to school. Once we check that off our endless to-do list, we now move onto the after school programs. My absolute favorite activity is one that my daughter has loved since she was three years old – dance. I say with conviction, we are at the BEST studio in Charlotte, Jami Masters School of Dance. We are entering our fifth year at JMSD and it thrills me to no end that I’m pretty sure we’re in this for the long haul. My child LOVES to dance at JMSD, and I have to say, she’s kind of good at it (of course I think that, I’m her mom and biggest fan!).
What I love about JMSD is their low-pressure philosophy:
To instill the love of dance in all of their students. They encourage each child to be the best they can be, and do this in a loving, caring, nurturing, and noncompetitive environment. Through careful, supervised dance training, students gain confidence and charm while developing stronger, healthier bodies.
This is no Dance Moms studio with crazy pressure where your child will burn out before she gets to high school. There is no pressure at JMSD, dancers go at their own pace. And they come in all shapes and sizes, which says a lot in my book. To Jami, it doesn’t matter who will or will not become a professional dancer. What does matter is that the children in this program will be better at whatever they choose to do in life because of this incredible experience.

Love Jami Masters!!
Kate’s class was cancelled last year due to lack of enrollment and we are hoping to get lucky this year!!!!
I was seriously looking at JMSD’s website this morning – I can’t wait til this spring bc my little tumble bug will finally be old enough for classes at JMSD!!
My daughter loved her first dance camp this summer — she still talks about her “missing tiara”…
Ooh we are just back from VT & trying to figure out where to go for ballet — this would be perfect!
My daughter just took her first JMSD camp this summer and it was a no-brainer to sign up for the year. We both loved it, and she has been jumping and twirling around the house every day.
My little girl would LOVE to begin dancing! What a great way to get that going!!
My daughter & I both love JMSD. She started with a summer camp last year, danced for a year in the 3s class, did Rapunzel camp this summer, & is enrolled for the fall. I was blown away with how professional & fun the end of year recital was. It’s a great place!
Caroline is signed up for her first year this fall and is so excited! She had her 4th birthday party there is summer and it was precious. The bday parties are so great – just show up with cupcakes and Jami Masters does the rest.
