Live With Janicka

Where are LIVE classes held?

LIVE classes are held at the School of Contemporary Ballet Dallas located at 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane #207 Dallas, TX 75206.

Do I have to sign-up online?

To avoid any long lines at the studio, we recommend that you enroll through our digital link; however, you are more than welcome to enroll in class at the studio.

How should I prepare for my first class at the studio?

We recommend that you eat and hydrate at least (1) hour prior to class and complete some light stretching before the start of class.

What should I bring with me to class?
  • Cute leotard or form-fitting outfit that makes you feel confident
  • Art of VII Apparel from Janicka’s Shop for cover-ups 🙂
  • Comfortable Ballet Shoes (should feel like socks)
  • Water Bottle
  • Towel
  • Positive Attitude
  • Courage
Can I still take class if I do not have ballet shoes?

Ballet shoes are preferred; but we understand that “life” happens. So, if you need your daily dose of ballet, but don’t have the necessary shoes, we recommend that you wear socks.

Do I have to wear leotard and tights to class?

Not unless you so desire! Form fitting clothes are appropriate to monitor your alignment.

How often should I come to class?

Dancer, the more you come to class, the quicker you’ll see results. One of my teachers once said to me: “One day off in the studio is like taking a week off”.

I couldn’t agree more.

The Movement Membership

What if I’m just getting started with ballet?

While I’d love to have you in the Movement Membership, this membership is best for dancers who have learned the fundamentals. If you’re just getting started, I’d be honored to teach you in Meet Me at the Barre (see our website for more details!).

When do I get access to the digital classes?

The classes start immediately once you join. The portal library is self-paced – you decide when you start and when you finish.

Do I need a Contemporary Ballet Dallas membership to participate?

Nope! You are not required to be a student of CBD to receive access to the Movement Membership.

Does my CBD membership apply to the Movement Membership?

Nope! CBD and Janicka A. Arthur are different entities and not dependent on one another.

How long is the membership commitment?

The Movement Membership is a subscription based service that is charged monthly. You can cancel at anytime through your personal membership portal.

What if I can’t make a weekend Technique Intensive?

Technique Intensives are scheduled every third Saturday of the month from 4 PM to 5:30 PM CST. Your attendance is based on your availability.

What if I do not use my services in a particular month, can I roll over my services to the next month?
