WELCOME

Welcome to the Joan Harris Centre, the most recognized dance studio in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our school emphasizes on the health and welfare of our dancers, build self esteem and operates with a “family first” philosophy. Our five full-school productions a season, excellent professional staff, large facility and community involvement is why we are regional school with students coming from five different counties of NEPA to train at our studio. We invite you to explore this site in order to get to know us better and then perhaps give us a call. We can’t wait to hear from you.

DANCE
CLASSES

Classes at the Joan Harris Centre are decidedly structured and designed to help each dancer reach his or her maximum potential.

Class size is limited to ensure a low student to teacher ratio. To keep classes consistent and organized, each student is evaluated by one of a select group of instructors and then placed in a class according to several criteria including; age, skill level, training and maturity.
