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.
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.
The Joan Harris Centre is a performing studio. All the school’s students appear in full school production several times a year. Our dancers also perform in various festivals, professional shows and community theater productions.
We have been blessed with some wonderful images provided to us by parents of our dancers and we would like to share a few of them with you here on our home on the internet. These fabulous images only scratch the surface of our shows, so we invite all of you to visit our Facebook page at JOAN HARRIS CENTRE, then go under PHOTOS, then hit ALBUMS and then hit SHOW ALL and your will find literally tens of thousands of pictures that will truly depict what our children have accomplished over the years. Feel free to tag yourself or share with your friends. Enjoy!
The Joan Harris Centre has a fully stocked dance shoppe that is open to all area dancers regardless of studio affiliation. They stock hundreds of shoes, including pointe, bodysuits, tights and accessories. They also offer professional pointe shoe fittings.
