During this time, dancers rehearse choreography while receiving pre-professional training specific to each dance style. All competition dancers take classes on two days during the school/work week. Dancers in multiple companies may dance anywhere from two to six days a week. Each company competes at a total of five competitions during the spring, including Nationals in the summer!

Dancers perform at 4 regional competitions in the spring and attend one national competition in June. They also perform in our annual June recitals.

We Care About Our Dancers' Growth

At Jam Hops Dance Company, we truly care about our dancers and their development. Our competitive dancers set goals for themselves, and our dance staff meets with them individually, multiple times throughout the year, to check in and see how we can help them achieve, learn, and grow as dancers and human beings.


JHDCo competition dancers receive an abbreviated evaluation in January, and a comprehensive evaluation in July after intensives. Instructors score and give notes on the dancers' progress.

Events & Activities

Service Project
Every year, JHDCo participates in a service project, giving our athletes the opportunity to help others in a meaningful way, and give back to the community. The past few years, we have made tie blankets for the homeless.

We like to have fun out of our dance shoes, too. JHDCo celebrates with parties in October and December!

Dancers show their JHDCo spirit by participating in parades. We are looking forward to the Anoka Halloween Parade on October 2024!
