About Joni's Dance Center
The owner and Artistic Director, Joan Christensen, established Joni's Dance Center in 1986 which has been providing quality dance education in Hamden and the Greater New Haven area for over 30 years.

The overall objective of Joni's Dance Center is to produce a well-rounded dancer with high self-esteem, integrity and who has a command of the basics and dance terminology.

Our curriculum offers a diverse range of subjects and styles for the recreational dancer as well as the dancer who wishes to attain an advanced level of training, in all disciplines.

This studio offers classes in the following:

The goal of Joni's Dance Center for the young dancer is to introduce them to the technique and music of dance through developed programs; structured to allow them to have fun while learning.

The intermediate dancer is taught through a more structured environment, using an established ballet program of levels that are used as a basis for the other styles of dance.

Finally, to create a seasoned dancer, challenges are offered in all subjects to expand their knowledge and push them to their peak performance.  Musical Theatre is the methodology used to create this well-rounded dancer.  It is our sincere hope, at the end of the program, we have taught the students an appreciation for musical theatre as well as dance.

My teaching staff and I look forward to creating a fun and educational environment that acts as an extension of their academic education.

Sincerely yours in dance,
