Welcome to our “new & improved” website!

We want to take just a moment to welcome you to the new Joel Hall Dancers & Center website!

To many, welcome back and THANK YOU for your continued love and support!

Our site redesign incorporated much of the valuable feedback we’ve received from our parents, students, faculty and staff to help us achieve what we feel is a dramatically enhanced user experience.

Among the highlights:

  • Improved Overall Site Navigation — including a TopNav bar, with drop-down menus that stays with you on every page of the website — making it far easier for you to find your way around the site, and get to the information that you are seeking.  (To return to the Home Page at anytime, simply click on the phrase “Joel Hall Dancers & Center” on the upper left.)
  • “Responsive Design” — enables you to experience on whatever device and platform you prefer: desktop, laptop, Mac or PC, iPhone, Android or tablet devices, such as your iPad.  Our new site is also fully platform-compatible with Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox … and more!
  • Built-in “Search” Feature — by using the search-box in the upper-left hand corner, and typing in a few words about the topic you are looking for, you can intuitively search through all the site content, and go directly to the corresponding pages to quickly get to the where you want.  (For example — if you search for “Urban Jazz Dance” all the references to that topic throughout the site will appear to you!)
  • Integrated Social Media Tools — enable you to easily remain engaged with Joel Hall Dancers & Center on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn, among others.  You’ll be connected to the many things that are ALWAYS happening here!!

And we’re not done yet!  Additional enhancements, and content expansions, are “Coming Soon” in the weeks and months ahead to make your experience even richer!

Now, it’s your turn to “take a test drive” and let us know what you think — simply post your comments right here on this blog.  As always, we welcome your feedback and constructive suggestions for improvement!!
