The Dance Company & Disney Performance Troupe at East Dance Studios

Established in 1992, The JoAnn East Dance Co. is a non-profit organization. Members participate in extra dance, scholarship, social, academic, and performance opportunities. Since its beginnings, hundreds of students from the communities we serve have enjoyed the local and national opportunities this charitable non-profit program provides. The JoAnn East Dance Co. is proudly open to any East Dance Studios' dancer, ages five to adult, who wishes to participate.  

In 1999, 2001, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 the JoAnn East Dance Company and members of East Dance Studios Disney Performance Troupe performed at the Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney Orlando.  As part of the performance tour, our students have the opportunity to take a behind the scenes specialized dance convention and seminar from the dance and casting professionals at Walt Disney World. In 2008 our dancers were featured in an article in the National Magazine:  Dance Studio Life in a feature article that JoAnn East wrote for the magazine about:  'Dancing at Disney'.

The 5 divisions of The Dance Company are open to our students (ages 5 through adult) who study Ballet, Tap, and Jazz. Age eligible students (who wish not to compete) may still enjoy the benefits of participating in conventions and other opportunities and workshops throughout the season.
