Dena Wosk School of Performing Arts


2010-2011 School Year
The Dena Wosk School of Performing Arts at the JCCGV is happy to welcome you to a new season of dance, theatre and music! We are here to help your child or yourself find the right way to express the inner artist, who dwells in each of us. We provide a stage for self-expression and creativity. At the same time, we teach the technique, the discipline, and the deep appreciation and respect for the arts which are essential for any education in this field. Our goal is to ensure that students gain self-confidence & self-discipline, while experiencing growth and developing through the performing arts.

Continuing this season, we are working on strengthening the technical level of our dance classes and thus create a higher level of commitment and excellence in the dance department. And since a strong foundation in dance begins with ballet, which creates the right alignment of the body, we are expanding our ballet program and making it a priority. At all levels, students are encouraged to study Ballet in conjunction with their other classes and it remains mandatory for the advanced Jazz students.

Our teaching faculty are all active, professional performers in their own field, as well as experienced, accomplished and respected teachers. They are here to encourage creative growth, to teach the skills and techniques of their arts, to stimulate and challenge the students into exploring their artistic potential.

The JCCGV offers superb facilities, plenty of convenient on-site parking and a great café, Nava’s. The Dena Wosk School of Performing Arts uses a variety of spaces at the JCC, including the Norman Rothstein Theatre, the two Dance Studios, the Wosk Auditorium and many other instructional rooms.
