Proudly, Jo Ann Warren Studio boasts numerous accomplished professional dancers, performers, and dance educators that we call our alumni.
Graduates of JAWS have resumes that include studio owners, master teachers, cruise lines, theme parks, international tours, national tours, major modern dance companies, backup dancers for top celebrities, Las Vegas Shows, television, movies, and current Broadway Shows.
Current JAWS students are extremely lucky to have the opportunity to take classes with alumni talent on staff and homecoming master classes.
From time to time our alumni drop us a line or shot out. Recently Spencer Jones aka “Mr. Broadway” a dance captain for Wicked on Broadway and of course proud JAWS alumni told us a bit about his amazing story. Thank You Mr. Broadway!
From JAWS To Broadway
"Jo Ann LITERALLY put me where I am today. Never having taken a dance class in my life, I came into the studio seeking summer drop-in classes and Jo Ann saw something in me and took me under her guidance. She has an amazing intuition like that, and threw me into all the advanced classes, and before I knew it, I was a dancer! Without her or the studio, I would never have even known I had this passion inside me. She also pointed me in the right direction professionally and helped me land my first dance job. Since then, I have been working as a professional dancer and even made it all the way to Broadway as the Dance Captain of "Wicked." I cannot say enough about how nurturing, informative, loving, and amazing JAWS is. Thanks so much Jo and Cyb!"
