Welcome to Armetta’s Grand Jeté Studio of Dance! I am Amanda Armetta-Gring, the
artistic director and I am very excited about this year!  I have been dancing all my
life literally, since my mom, a dancer as well, was pregnant with me, and danced on
stage!  As owner and instructor of the dance studio I would once again like to
welcome you to “Armetta’s Grand Jeté Studio of Dance”.

There are just a few guidelines that must be followed for a smooth year.  Please
take a few minutes to read the

the tuition out of your account.  This will help save time writing checks & you will
never be late again!  If you would like to do this please contact Miss Amanda.

over 25 themes for boys and girls such as: Ballerina Princess, MTV Dance, and

from the invitations, to party favors, cake, crafts, decorations, dance, and clean
up! *See Miss Amanda to book your party today!

~New Dance Style~
Street Tap!  What is street tap?  A modern up-to-date version of tap.  It includes a
hip-hop style of dance combined with fun new music. Many students have taken a
tap class before but before you say no to tap at Grand Jete, try out a class.  Miss
Nicole our Street Tap teacher has been performing and teaching for quite some
time now.  Her high energy class is the perfect fit for any dancer.
