Celebrating Over 55 years of Dancing Excellence and Family Tradition!

Everyone is born with an innate need to move expressively.  At our schools we help our students gain a greater sense of self-awareness, self-discipline and self-esteem.  We invite you to join in the fun with Columbus’ finest teachers at the Marjorie Jones Schools, Inc. We are looking forward to another rewarding season that we hope will include you!

We are proud to celebrate almost 6 decades of tradition and teaching excellence at the Marjorie Jones Schools, Inc.  Our students are trained in dance technique, as well as given the opportunity to shine on stage.  Dozens of graduates of the Marjorie Jones Schools have attended university and college dance major/minor programs.  Our former students have founded Modern Dance Companies; choreographed for & performed with major companies across the United States and Europe, performed in Broadway productions, including the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, and performed for Disney and Carnival Cruise Lines.

Mission: Our Objectives & Goals

Founded in 1960- Dancing with the Marjorie Jones Schools is an exciting, learning experience for the Pre-Schooler to the Pre-Professional.  Our dance program is a training regimen for the student who wishes to pursue a career in dance, as well as for one who desires simply to develop a love and appreciation of the arts.  The best of Broadway, the elegance of the Classics, and the impact of Modern; whatever style it takes we cover the world of dance.

Our goal at Marjorie Jones is to teach, motivate, and inspire our students in an esteem-building atmosphere.  We have an “open door policy,” and encourage you to speak with your child’s instructor regarding questions or concerns you might have.  We pride ourselves on our ability to keep the lines of communication open between Instructors and Parents.

Our instructors appreciate the time and energy both our students and their families put into their training.  Therefore, we schedule our performances and dance school calendar with our students and their families in mind.

Class Placement and Scheduling:

            Students are placed in class levels based on their skill level, along with their age.  Class level for an individual student will be determined by the instructor.  Class registration will be held in August for the upcoming school year.  We will continue to accept new students through the month of January.  Because class placement is vital to our dancers’ success, students with experience must be placed by our staff.  For correct placement of a student, it is important to attend Fall Class Registration in person (students accompanied by a Parent).
