If you respect her, she'll respect you. The "punishments" are only done when the whole class of 80+ kids are talking. So rather than having a conversation with every individual who, many times have no respect for her, she will have them do a workout. When it comes to favorites, yes she definitely has favorites; however those favorites earned their position through respect and interest. Those who feel as if she's a bully, it was most likely due to them not paying attention and she called them out
She's a bully and doesn't care that she has favorites. Not warm or welcoming. Too bad for her.
Mrs. Jones is the best dance teacher ever!!! All of her dances are amazing and the shows that she puts are are outstanding. I made Advance Dance freshmen year without preforming at all; she changed that for me; now I'm great at preforming. When I first came to take class with her I could barely do 4 turns but now I'm doing 10 thanks to her conditioning. Some say that she picks favorites but she likes those who like her. If you try hard she will like you; don't have an attitude or miss class.
i was never " the best" dancer, my technique wasn't great. but my freshman year, i was beyond excited to be in dance but eventually i realized how horribly jones treated not just me, but students who aren't her favorites, you don't matter to her and that point, sometimes ( like me) she legitimately won't even care to learn your real name. it made me almost hate preforming. but then i switched out into choir and realized not all of the arts are like that. just, don't do dance at losal.
She picks favorites, so if you are not one of those few who are her favorite well then good luck. She is very rude and doesnt care for other peoples time. If you are in her class and the bell has rung for passing period she will keep you in until she is done teaching, she doesnt care if you are late for the next class, she has no respect for other peoples time.
I came to the losal dance program after 10 years of dancing and professional training and made team my freshman year. This program is a terrible excuse for dancing. Jones has not been into the dance world since the 80s and it shows. I often came to class sick. SHE IS A BULLY. Her assistant fight also said some mean things about me to her students at Onstage. I quit after 2 years. Best decision I ever made. Jones actually made hate dancing, which i never thought was possible. DO NOT JOIN DANCE.
Ms. Jones is a great teacher! very good coreographer and makes the best shows:) she and many students put a lot of effort into the dance program and its unfair for people to not even try just to get
She plays favorites all the time and is very biased. If you are of her favorites, you will have a great time. But if you aren't, it can be a stressful class. And she seems very intimidating, but she d
Mrs. Jones is overall a great teacher. I had more positive experiences in her class than negative. I can honestly say I had a great time in her class, she is a very fair teacher. I learned a lot.
She can tend to pick favorites and is a bit intimidating, but she really is an excellent teacher and really cool when you actually talk to her. amazing dance choreography. Her sidekick Fight=amazing!
She picks favorites, and it's not really fair to the rest of the students who work equally as hard.
Good dance teacher, fun shows.However, if you miss a class even if you are gone for the day doing some thing else for the school you might get pulled from a dance unless you are one of her favorites.
She picks favorites not by those who are talented but by those who put in effort and try to PERFORM. If you want to stand in the back and slack off during warm up don't expect any special treatment.
she really is a great teacher and is really nice. i love her!
the class was fun only because of ms. avalos. mrs. jones only cares about the favorites in the class and could care less about the rest of the class. she only teaches hip hop and a bit of jazz.
Mrs Jones. Think about the things you say and the looks you give before you decide to give them.. it might ruin someones day. Please be considerate of everyones feelings..your bias
Mrs. Jones is the best! she was so awesome during dance camp last summer and is a great teacher at skewl!
i love mrs. jones. not only is she funny, but she's nice too. i love doing the performances, and totally look forward to dance everyday
Dance was cool, but Mrs. JOnes is not! She pics favorites and she pics the worst costumes ever... Its a waste of time just go to a studio, you will learn more!
You're one of my favorite teachers. You're sooooo nice and your combinations/dances are always really original.
Mrs. Jones is the best teacher ever. She is really nice, and she always choreographs the best dances!
I used to hate attending dance classes, then i came to Los Alamitos and Mrs. Jones helped me find that passion again and helped me improve so much! She ROCKS
I loved Mrs. Jones even though she did pick favorites!!
Mrs. Jones picks favorites way too much!! She takes the class way too seriously... everyone just takes it because they dont want to be in PE.
Mrs. Jones picks favorites to often. She works with the students that are already good and doesnt improve the others.

Mrs.Jones picks her favorites and then hates the others. She makes the bad dancers dance together in groups..THATS HORRIBLE! She doesnt know how to dance
