Our dance family stems from Jane, Jane's sister, daughter and now granddaughters!  We have expanded to have faculty now having their children in our program.  If you would like to be a part of our TAYLOR dance family, you can call Jane at (507) 582-7884 (local for Austin), or phone Natalie at (507) 440-4713.  Jane's first dance instructor is back in town and still stops in to visit  and share with the students her memories of studying with the Bolshoi Ballet!   Nita Borchardt from the Radio City Rockettes stopped in and gave a workshop in the past.  All of Jane's staff  (Ms. Natalie, Ms. Cara Ms. Kari) hold a Degree from  Universities/Colleges.

At the Jane Taylor Academy of Dance, our goal with our students is to instill a love of learning dance, and pride in their accomplishments.  We enjoy a close relationship with the Faculty and the families of those in our Academy, and Instructors are available to meet with parents.  Long term goals of our alumni are often accomplished, many of our students have been granted full college scholarships to prestigious Universities and have or are currently  pursuing advanced degrees, including one of our students being awarded the 'Gus Giordano Scholarship Award', our student was selected by Gus himself!  Watch for updates!

We  have a full oak floor throughout the studio and into the dressing rooms.  We also have renovated the bathroom area.  We have recently renovated for the season.
