The Jill Foster Dance Centre (JFDC) is a family Owned and operated Dance school based within Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. Our Mission statement has always been 'Dancing for Fun & Fitness' and our goal is to give high standard dance tuition in a variety of styles for all ages and abilities.
We first opened our doors in August 1980 at the Bradwell Village Memorial Hall offering classes in Ballroom, Latin, Disco, and Classical Sequence. Since then we have had tens of thousands of students enjoy our classes which are ever growing and changing in style.
Today the JFDC offers over 35 classes at six venues throughout Milton Keynes and the surrounding area as well as one to one tuition, IDTA Professional training and Competitive coaching at our flagship studio space at MK Snap, Walnut Tree.
in 2020 We will be celebrating 40 years of bringing dance to Milton Keynes and we hope you will join us in celebrating our Ruby year!
From taking her first steps Jill knew that she wanted to be a dance teacher. Jill’s school opened in 1980 and is now one of the the top ten dance schools in the world for IDTA examination business.
Jill was appointed an IDTA examiner in 1999 which has given her the opportunity of examining candidates both at home and abroad. Professional development is an important aspect of Jill’s work with many dancers approaching her for technical training and business mentoring. Jill has been rewarded by the excellent results achieved by candidates including the John Dilworth Award winner in 2003 and 2010.
The highlight of Jill's career was being awarded a Carl Alan award in 2007 and again in 2014. After achieving a Masters degree in Leadership and Management, Jill contributed to the Bucks New University Dance Foundation Degree and developed units in event and examination organisation and choreographic practice. Lecturing at all levels has kept Jill busy and dance associations regularly request her choreography for young children.
