JDF ELITE DANCE ACADEMY

COMPANY

What is JDF Elite Company? 


The JDF EDA Company under the direction of Jennifer Forst is a highly-competitive National Award Winning company designed for advanced pre-professional dancers ages 9-19 who train and rehearse 15 or more hours a week, and compete in almost all genres of dance. JDF company attends approximately 5-7 competitions and several conventions held mainly during the spring, primarily in Houston, and participates in several local charity events and performances throughout the year.  

High School Dancers...

In addition, NEW THIS YEAR, dancers age 15-19 who are involved in extracurricular activities at the high school level and cannot commit the 15 or more hours a week but still want to compete with JDF Company now have a separate requirement for hours spent in classes. This will enable our dancers to be inolved in as much as they feel they can manage within the time allowed. At JDF we believe in kids being kids! It is important to have a main focus, but should enjoy the opportunity to engulf themselves in many experiences thus creating well rounded and talented individuals as adults.

Elementary Dancers...

For our competitive dancers ages 3-8 our program is designed to introduce them to the competitive world of dance. They train and rehearse approximately 4-7 hours per week and compete in almost all genres of dance. They will attend 3-7 competitions and several conventions held mainly during the spring, primarily in Houston, and participates in several local charity events and performances throughout the year. 

Many former JDF Elite Company members have reached their goals for HSPVA, Drill Teams, college dance programs and teams, professional dance teams and more after training with our competition company.
