Jake's Dance Factory started in 1999.
Since that time we've been the first to perform & teach the dance styles as seen nowadays in TV-Shows like So You Think You Can Dance.
Attitude and Groove (Groove = expression in your techniques) that is the Jake Dance style!
Combined with techniques and full body control.
In a short word we call that "Groove"...
That's what you learn at Jake's Dance Factory, "The School of Hard Knocks"!
JDF dancers are renowned within the International dance scene. Among other JDF dancers have been dancing for artists as Chris Brown, Mariah Carey, Keith Sweat and as support acts for Destiny's Child, Ruff Endz and 50 Cent. They also participated as choreographers for JETIX, Top of the Pops and other television stations , programs and production companies. They have also been in high demand for after parties of international artists such as Ashanti / Ja Rule, Usher and Alicia Keys.
To keep his students all-round and in touch with other international dance styles Jake also organises master classes with International Choreographers like Marty Kudelka, Super Dave, Eddie Morales and Richard O'Sullivan.
