Best of Boston

2001 Best Dance Studio

Jeannette Neill Dance Studio

Aspiring professionals, athletic young adults, and spirited beginners gather at this gem of a dance studio, tucked away in an unassuming low-rise near North Station. Seasoned performers lead each class with enthusiasm, patience, and style. Plus, the venue attracts big-deal guest instructors such as Alvin Ailey principal dancer Matthew Rushing. A traditional mix of classes (jazz, ballet, tap) is complemented by funky hip-hop and video dance options.
