More About JWSD-Evolution Inc.
The Joanne Whittaker School of Dance first began in 1982. Joanne Whittaker ran a successful studio in Mountain for more than 25 years, until she retired in 2008 and closed the studio. However, this is not the end of this local school of dance's story.
Two years later, Thea Sanders and Danah Raymondo, two alumni dancers from the Joanne Whittaker School of Dance, re-opened the studio as JWSD Evolution Inc. Students flock from many surrounding areas, including Morrisburg, Spencerville, Prescott, Merrickvillle, Kars, Iroquois, and Kemptville, to enjoy more than 40 different classes in several genres per week. Every other year, Showcase performances are choreographed and produced. On the off years, ballet and tap exams are held. Now, in our 10th year, we've grown and are thriving! Classes in dance and yoga are held 7 days a week to accommodate everyone who has joined our dance family.
