About Us


MJDA has been teaching young dancers of the Midlands since 2007.  MJDA began as a very small dance school focusing on ballet and jazz technique.

In 2014, MJDA gained its own dance studio off of Parklane Road where we added to our staff as well as included more genres of dance to our class schedule. As MJDA grew in numbers, the studio later moved to it’s second location in the Meeting Place Plaza off of Columbia Mall Boulevard where the Academy currently resides.  MJDA is housed in a 4 Studio, 5500 square foot facility including a room specifically for acrobatics as well as a full lobby for parents.

MJDA’s mission is to provide dancers with a comprehensive artistic education that fosters excellence in all forms of dance. Mrs. Jenkins Dance Academy program is designed to help young people see themselves in a more positive light, develop poise, grace, and self-confidence. Classes are divided based on age, ability and experience.  All classes are taught by professional instructors with over 10 year experience.

The Best Dance Instructors

Anyone can be a dancer, but not everyone has the skills and aptitude to be an effective dance instructor. There is more to teaching than just choreographing a few dance moves and expecting students to blindly follow suit. It takes a whole lot of gumption to mold awkward beginners into skilled professionals that can proudly showcase their craft to the world.

Variety of Classes

MJDA offers a class for dancers at every level beginning at the tender age of two. Choose from among the following classes and programs: Recreational, Dance Company (Competition Teams),  Hip Hop Company, Acrobatics and Tumbling.
