Our  Mission

We're Jenny's Dance Academy and we've been a local dance school in Blue Grass, IA, since 2002. We strive to build coordination and poise to create great dancers while building self-esteem and confidence for creating excellent individuals. We started this business to offer classes to our community from beginner to advanced. Our small class sizes and reasonable tuition rates make it easy for everyone to enjoy the art of dance and tumbling. We're looking forward to growing our business to continue to serve Blue Grass and the surrounding areas. We'd like to personally invite you to join us today for ballet, tap, hip hop, tumbling, and more!
