The Otero Junior College Dance Program will be offering their spring semester of classes, beginning the week of Jan. 14. Prices vary depending on classes. Students can register for classes in OJC’s Student Services during their regular hours. Normal hours are, Monday – Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. OJC’s campus will be closed beginning on Dec. 24. Campus will return to normal business hours beginning on Jan. 2.

OJC dance director, Jennifer Jackson stated, “Children as young as two years old can start developing coordination, stamina, and strength in our classes. The classes for ages 2 and up include creative movement, ballet, tap, jazz, pointé, and acrobatics. We welcome parents and potential students to stop by our studio and observe a class any time.”

“Our top priority is safety and technique. All of this is done while maintaining a healthy body, healthy self-image, building strength, friendships, confidence, and most importantly, having fun,” Jackson said.

The OJC Dance Program was founded by Darlene Blackford in 1981. The program started out as an after school dance program, offering classes in beginning ballet, and has grown to include classes in all levels of ballet, pointe, jazz, tap and children's movement classes for Pre-School aged children. According to Jackson the program is committed to providing quality dance instruction and has become a stepping stone for students in the Arkansas Valley wishing to pursue dance in college and beyond.
