Dance to Express Not to Impress

We believe that the level of choreography a dancer can perform is based on how high the bar is set by the Choreographer. It is the Instructor's job to inspire and motivate the student to desire to learn and grow. The level of skill that they achieve depends on the dedication, passion and work ethic the student develops.

SAJ Dance Productions promotes positive confident attitudes coupled with hard work, dedicated rehearsal time, team cohesion and physical core strength to extract the best that the student has to offer. All students are encouraged to take ballet. The base movements of all genres are derived from strong ballet core training. 

Our Creative Director, Stephanie Jenkins, is an award winning choreographer with 20 years of training under instructors such as; Cynthia Kaye, Charles Maples, Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich, American Ballet Theater and Ballet Austin. Miss Stephanie brings a big city vision to the desert with a small town pride and passion for her students. 

We offer recreational dance classes and a competitive dance team but strive for our students to reach for the excellence of our production company. Our students are encouraged to achieve the highest level of expertise they can and are rewarded for their hard work.  

Our combined experience in the art of dance and working and mentoring children is unique. Our instructors, not only provide instruction in the art of dance but in the terminology and history of dance and the kinesiology of body movement and how to care for the dancer's body nutritionally and when they are injured. We care for the whole dancer. Mind body and spirit. The end game is to grow kids that we would be proud to live next door to once they are grown up.

We nurture the artist, inspire the competitor and teach love for the art. We develop team unity in the art of dance, excellence in performance and require the best our students have inside.
