Community Outreach is an important part of JLD's mission and identity as a dance company. We are always looking for ways to contribute to the communities we visit on tour as well as our local Long Island City and Queens communities. We want to invest in the communities that have always been supportive of our growing company.

Open Rehearsal:
We invite you to join us for a behind-the-scenes look at a professional dance company. Come spend a day with JLD, and witness a day in the life of the company. You will have the opportunity to watch the company's ballet class and rehearsal, see a short informal showing followed by a chance to meet Jessica Lang and the dancers in a Q&A!

This event is FREE and open to the public.
Families and walk-ins are welcome and encouraged.
