Welcome to Armetta's Grand Jeté Studio of Dance

Voted Best Dance Studio of the Valley by Lehigh Valley Magazine 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012!

Our philosophy is to provide excellence in dance, twirling, theater, special needs and gymnastics with an excellent faculty and staff.

Here at Armetta's Grand Jeté  we will introduce children to the joy and magic of dance, where imagination is stimulated,
coordination is increased, and everyone has fun.

We work hard to keep our  standards high.

Good dance education teaches concentration and discipline - qualities that will help your child in school or any path they choose.

The main objective of Armetta’s Grand Jeté is to pass on the passion of dance.  To not only allow our students to learn the steps
and movement of dance but to be able to express themselves with this universal language.
