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:


Our mission is simple: to provide first-class instruction in the arts in a friendly, family-oriented facility built to do so.

12/28/14 Next Paint Party: May 16

We’re throwing another \\"grown-up\\" Paint Party on Saturday, May 16 and you’re invited. If you’ve never painted before, or haven’t attended one of our parties, don’t worry. That’s the fun of it – to see what will happen when you are introduced to some paint and a brush. Instructor Robin Nervegna will guide you stroke by stroke in creating a 16 x 20” acrylic painting to take home. It’s fun, fulfilling and very user friendly. We provide you with everything, from the paint to the apron – not to mention the wine, cheese and other refreshments. Just bring your inner artist and willingness to explore it. Recommended age is 18 and older. The cost for the Paint Party is $30 and includes everything. To register for either party, call 482-3324 or respond to this e-mail.

12/28/14 Piloxing: a new fitness craze

Piloxing is the best of pilates, kickboxing and dance all in one high-energy workout. Or as its founder, Viveca Jensen describes it: “This is about elongation, balance and flexibility, but then we might do a little cha-cha because I want people to feel feminine and have fun. It’s not that serious. I say shake your bum bum. It’s a workout class.” Piloxing is now offered at The Janice Center every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The class fee is $10 or you can purchase a 12-class plan for $100.

09/20/13 The Bus Stops Here

Busses from Sullivan West Elementary and High Schools stop directly in front of The Janice Center everyday. If your child has a class or lesson after school, you don\'t have to worry about transporting him or her here. Just let the authorities at the school know they will be taking the bus to The Janice Center and they\'re all set. 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.

06/04/13 Check out Rockin Yoga!

If yoga is a little too slow for you and Zumba is too fast, we’ve got something just right: rockin’ yoga. Exclusive to the Janice Center, this unique class gives yoga a new, hip tempo with original routines set to classic rock music.If it sounds different and fun, it is. Come to Jeffersonville and check it out! Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 p.m. We supply the mats.
