New Partnership for J'Adore Dance!

From our humble beginnings as a small, home-based business offering dance fitness classes to postnatal moms, the last 9 years have seen J’Adore Dance grow into a thriving dance studio offering non-competitive programs for all ages.

We’ve dedicated ourselves to providing our loyal clients with the highest quality programming, and this has led to exponential growth over the last 5 years. With this increasing demand, the workload associated with running J’Adore Dance has also dramatically increased. Founder Jessica Baudin-Griffin remains committed to ensuring J’Adore Dance continues to meet the needs of recreational dancers in Edmonton, while retaining our studio’s close community feel and welcoming atmosphere. In order to meet these goals, a passionate partner is essential.

It is with great excitement we welcome Chantel Sampson as new co-owner of J’Adore Dance!

Chantel has been an instructor with J’Adore Dance for the past few years, but has many more years of experience as an exemplary dance educator in Edmonton. In her time with J’Adore Dance, Chantel has been actively involved in our Full Year Children’s Dance programs and has added much value to the J’Adore Dance team. With her own freelance dance company aptly named “For the Love of Dance,” J’Adore Dance is thrilled to welcome a partner with the same passion for accessible, recreational dance. 

In this new partnership, Jessica will remain the Artistic Director of J’Adore Dance, responsible for ensuring the overall vision, philosophy, teaching, and programming at J’Adore Dance remains true to our roots. Chantel will take on the role of School Director, focusing on the development and directorship of the Full Year Dance programs. Chantel and Jessica will work together to expand the programming at J’Adore Dance to allow the studio to reach an even broader range of dancers in Edmonton.

We are currently looking for opportunities to expand the J’Adore Dance Studio into a larger space, with our clients’ needs our #1 priority! Please watch for more details about these plans as we get farther along in the expansion process.

Through the partnership with Chantel, expanded programming, and a larger space, we are excited for the opportunity to bring accessible, recreational dance to many more Edmontonians!
