Express Yourself

You won’t find another studio like JubalArts anywhere in the Greater Lansing area. The difference is simple. We pursue excellence in dance and music technique in order to better communicate love to our Heavenly Father and life to other people through our artistic expressions. Whether we are in the classroom or onstage, all we do is for the glory of Jesus Christ.

JubalArts has been serving greater-Lansing families since 2006, offering a variety of dance classes for each age group throughout the school year and during part of the summer.

Come experience the joy and creativity at JubalArts for yourself.

Our mission is to glorify Jesus Christ in the classroom and on stage. We begin each class with a weekly scriptural devotion and prayer. Students make connections between dance and their Creator and have opportunities to use dance to express their faith during the school year in the classroom and in the community.

Each year, students have at least one opportunity to take the love of Christ into our city through a community dance performance at a local retirement community. We are always so blessed by the joy that we have in meeting people in our city and sharing what we’ve been learning in the classroom!
