Take a virtual tour of the Studio!
After moving to Missouri in 2012, MJ Performing Arts Academy owner Meg Jordan began teaching dance classes at home. The number of students quickly grew in just a few months. In 2013, Meg decided to open her 1st studio in Webster Groves. In a brief 2 years, with the help of her amazing staff members, the number of dancers grew exponentially! After reaching 200 students, Meg decided to invest and relocate to a much larger space to accommodate the growing number of dance families.
Our beautiful location includes 3 large classrooms, each with large viewing windows for parents, high ceilings, professional dance and gymnastics flooring, as well as a spacious lobby with plenty of seating.
Our Dance Family
Due to our professional and passionate teaching staff, the studio has grown to over 300+ families from Webster and the surrounding community. Ages of students range from 24 months to adult. Many of the MJ staff members have graduated from, or are current members of Webster University. Check out our staff bio pages to learn more about our team!
