The JC school of dance started off as ‘The Pavely School of Dance” and was run by Caroline Wheatcroft. It was originally just an RAD Ballet school when Jan Cox bought the school in 2003 and she introduced ISTD modern and tap incorporating all the grades and started entering students for ISTD examinations in both modern and tap as well as RAD examinations.
A little later the Bi-Annual show was introduced which started at the Abbey Theatre but soon moved to the Radlett Centre and more recently to  ‘The Trestle Arts Centre’ in St Albans.

Erna Kuenen and Lynsey Bradshaw have now taken over the JC school of dance and are introducing street dance as well as contemporary and a boys street dance class.

Erna & Lynsey are very excited to take on the running of this new school and believe the close proximity of both Spotlight & JC School of dance will enable students to cross over and attend classes at either branch.

Exciting times ahead and watch this space for more news!
