Dance with us.

Johnston Dance Academy

Founded by Jeanne Chelsen, Johnston Dance Academy (JDA) has been producing dancers in the Greater Des Moines area for over 25 years.

JDA offers a wide range of dance classes for all ages. From recreational to advanced and competitive levels, JDA offers an extensive range of techniques including ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical, musical theater and hip hop. We invite you to come dance with us. Contact the studio today for a tour and information on our classes.

“We believe dance makes a difference in children’s lives. We create a friendly, personal atmosphere allowing dancers to express themselves building coordination, flexibility, strength and stamina. With continued development, self-confidence grows as well as positive attitudes, and superior social and leadership skills.”

Jeanne Chelsen
