Studio J Academy of Dance in Beachwood has been bringing the joys of dance to students for over 15 years.

Under owner and director Jennifer Kups, along with a staff of professionally trained instructors, the studio offers classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, improvisation, dance team & adult  classes.

Kups began dancing at the age of 3 and fell in love with the art form so much that she danced six days a week from her hometown studio to the Cleveland Ballet.  She received her bachelor of science degree in dance performance from Kent State University.

Studio J offers an early childhood program that teaches young children all styles of dance in a fun, warm, engaging atmosphere and a preprofessional program where the student is able to study each discipline more in depth.  “Studio J has always been a place that is welcoming and friendly.  It has not only been a place to learn to dance, but it has been a place to make friends and discover who your inner dancer is,” says Hannah Bolender.

Kups strongly believes that dance not only gives poise, self-confidence and strength but also a place where children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.  “Studio J has provided my daughters with a creative outlet that has given them confidence in other areas of their life.  The teachers foster a collaborative, fun and hard working environment while understanding the balance needed in other areas of life,” says Gina Willis.

The studio has a promotion for 2017, if you are 3 you are free for three months, set in place to encourage the young dancer, but not pressure them.

Fall classes begin September 11.  For more information please call 216-292-2720 or visit www.studiojdance.com.
