Welcome to the Joan Yankauskas School of Dance!
Joan Yankauskas Owner Director of the Joan Yankauskas School of Dance - Dancer, Teacher, Choreographer, and professional Dancer. I began to study dance at age three. By the time I was five I knew what my profession was going to be, a dance teacher. I began assisting my teacher with classes at the age of thirteen. I was teaching my own classes by age sixteen. I began my professional career at age sixteen as a Middle Eastern dancer called Tasjha. I performed in dinner clubs throughout Massachusetts, Rhone Island, Connecticut, and New York. I performed on the television show Mixed Bag at age sixteen.
I First received my dance training locally and then in New York trained with legendary dancers such as Luigi, Gus Giordano, Charles Kelley and Frank Hatchett. Our School

The Joan Yankauskas School of Dance was established in 1970.  Miss Joan has 52 years of experience teaching dance and 63 years of experience dancing.  We have classes for preschool children through adult.  We offer beginner classes or advanced classes. Our classes are for serious dancers looking to become professio0nal or the not so serious dancer, dancing for fun for just a good workout. All of our classes are limited in size, so each student gets the individual attention they deserve or need.  All of our classes are one hour in length.  We have at least one assistant teacher trained by Miss Joan in every class.  If we do not offer a class to fit your schedule, and you have five people interested, you may schedule your own class and time as long as the studio has the time available.  The studio is open Monday thru Saturday and we are closed on Fridays and Sundays.  Our summer classes begin the last week of June.  The studio is open Monday thru Thursday in the summer.

Testimonials
Joan Yankauskas School Of Dance | Testimonials
"Miss Joan´s" passion for dance has really transformed my appreciation and respect for the art over the past year and a half. Her instruction in class is valuable, encouraging, and a lot of fun! She easily manages a class of several dancers and at the same time keeps a strong sense of the personal progress of each individual. Miss Joan has a warm comfortable personality and a great sense of humor; but I still think her greatest asset as a teacher is that she loves to dance and she will make you love it too! -Kelly
