Carly Meyers had this to say about JACAD
"My time at Jayne. A. Coleman Academy of Dance was so special to me. It's the best dance training I've ever had and fully prepared me to move on to higher education in performing arts! If it wasn't for Jayne's professionalism and passion I wouldn't have been able to go to college at 16, and I fully believe I owe a lot of my career to the training I had at Jayne's and to Jayne herself. She is so passionate and inspiring and cares for us all like her children. She taught us the true meaning of hard work, and I think this is why she gets the results she does. I couldn't ask for a better foundation to start my professional career, and think of my time at JACAD as some of the best of my career! "
