You no longer have to look to New York City or its surrounding suburbs to bring the arts into the lives of your family. Established in 2008, The Janice Center is a 2,800 square foot facility in Jeffersonville devoted to learning music, dance, art and more, including our Stepping Tones Pre-School. It is the only one of its kind in the Hudson Valley Region. Whether it's musical instruction in the brass instruments, piano, flute, clarinet, drums, saxophone, guitar, violin and voice; Music Together® programs for introducing music to children 0-5; dance classes in ballet, hip hop; children's art, karate, kidnastics, Zumba, Piloxing, yoga, summer camps, Stepping Tones or our popular Paint Parties, The Janice Center will be the home for anyone who has an interest in learning or enjoying any of the arts.

With more than 25 years in music and art education, we have selected the very best instructors to conduct the various programs. Our facility is specially designed to teach the arts with separate rooms for individual instruction and two main ballrooms for large class programs as well as recitals, seminars and workshops. There is even a waiting room with television so parents can wait comfortably for their kids.

We've tried to think of everything that will maximize the experience of learning the fine arts. But we're always open to ideas and suggestions. So please contact us to share your thoughts. Or visit us at Facebook:

Busses from Sullivan West Elementary and High Schools stop directly in front of The Janice Center everyday.

If they have to wait any amount of time for their class or lesson to begin, we have a waiting room and also a common area where they can sit an do homework. Also we provide snacks and water. We will always be here until your child is picked up after the class or lesson -- they will never be left alone.
