In just one week, our incredible dancers will take the stage at the Capitol Theatre for our annual gala Recital. It’s sure to be an amazing show! If you haven’t ordered your recital DVDs yet, now is the time – forms are available at the studio.
We’ve had another awesome year at JJIU – we had a great time working with the Port Hope Figure Skating Club and Northumberland Gymnastics, and held a hip hop workshop with the Port Hope Cubs!
Our Junior Ballet class was the feature performance at the Port Hope Civic Awards and our Competitive Team rocked centre court at the halftime shows for both the Oshawa Power and the Harlem Globetrotters! Our Stardust dancers were supermodels for a day, showcasing gorgeous Le Chateau fashions at Northumberland Mall’s Prettiest PROM-otion!
The comp team took the stage by storm at competitions in Chicago, Buffalo and Toronto and as we finish off a great year we are thrilled to be working with photographer Iden Ford who is shooting our dancers’ photos for the first time!

We had another amazing competition in Buffalo with our best showing ever! 15 First place, 7 Second place, and 3 Third place awards, and special awards for Best Emotional Execution, Best Costuming and Best Presentation.
Our young ballet dancers will light up the stage at the Port Hope Civic Awards on April 18th at the Capitol Theatre and our Stardust dancers are performing at Northumberland Mall ‘s Prettiest Promotion April 20th.

Well, what can we say about our first competition of the year in Chicago… it was totally awesome! Our comp dancers rocked the stage and we had a total blast! Congratulations to all our dancers and special thanks to our parents who made the long trip to the windy city and do so much to support our kids!
Take a look at just some of the fun we had…
We have had a great time in the last few weeks working with the Port Hope Figure Skating Club and Northumberland Gymnastics and we made a special trip to visit the 1st Port Hope Cub Pack for a super cool hiphop workshop. The cubs were amazing and we made a little video to show off their awesome dance moves!
What’s next for JJIU? Where do we begin?
On Wednesday, March 13, our comp team will perform at the Oshawa Power Basketball half-time show.
On April 18th the team hits center court once again for the Harlem Globetrotters Game at the General Motors Centre in Oshawa!
And if you are heading to the Port Hope Civic Awards ceremony on April 18, you will be treated to a performance by our incredibly taltented Intro to Ballet dancers – don’t miss it!
Next weekend, we’re off to Buffalo for our second competition of the year – always one of our very favourites and you KNOW we’ll share the pictures when we get back!
February already??!! It seems like the last few weeks have flown by! Maybe because we were all so thrilled to see each other again after Christmas vacation…
Or maybe because we were working so hard on our comp dances to get ready for our first competition of the year in CHICAGO!! We are super excited to be headed to the Windy City to hit the stage with our awesome numbers!
We’ll tell you all about it when we get back but in the meantime, here’s a fantastic blast from competitions past – our 2012 Pixy Team rocking the stage with their award-winning number Little Miss Perfekt!!
A super special thanks to all the parents that came out this week for Parent Observation! We had a great time showing off everything we’ve learned this year and the teachers always enjoy a chance to tell our parents how much we love your dancers.
We are off for Christmas holidays for the next two weeks but we just wanted to say one more time – Merry Christmas from JJIU!
Some of our comp team dancers headed over to the mall after classes today to visit with Santa and spread some sparkly cheer – scroll past the photo for a special JJIU holiday treat!
We can’t believe it’s December already but we rang in the holiday season in true JJIU style. We proudly led the Port Hope Santa Claus parade down the main street spreading sparkly holiday cheer near and far!
Then we celebrated the holiday season with our JJIU family and friends at our annual Christmas party. It was our biggest crowd yet and we enjoyed great food, wonderful company and a super special visit from Santa!
Saturday, December 15 is the start of Parent Observation Week and parents in all our recreational classes are welcome to observe their students working hard and having fun!
The studio will be closed from Friday, December 20 until Sunday, January 6, 2013 for the holidays and we’ll see you back and dancing on Monday, January 7, 2013!
