Dance Program

Jeanette Jacobson has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance and Theatre, with a concentration in dance and a minor in creative and professional writing, from Manhattanville College.
She has been trained in acting, dancing, choreography, lighting design, sound design, stagecraft, and directing. She has choreographed many musicals and over 100 original dance pieces, including a thirty minute production focused on dancing with disabilities entitled “I Can’t NOT Dance.”
Mrs. Jacobson has been dancing professionally with Mooney Cooley Dance Company since 2013. Although she loves performing, she feels there is nothing better than seeing her students, learn, perform, and have fun.

Our Dance Program aims to give students a highly personal and individual experience that challenges them to learn different techniques and new choreography every trimester.

With small class sizes, and consistent dance classes, students are able to leap out of their comfort zones, and reach their goals in dance.

Every trimester, we will focus on two or three different styles of dance in order to gain a basic understanding of the techniques of each form.

In both classes Fridays act as our “Choreographers’ Workshop” days where the students present dances they have choreographed to the class.

The Storm King Dance Program is designed to expose the students to as many styles of dance as possible including, jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, modern, pointe, hip hop, contemporary, musical theatre dance, and more.
