Ms.jones is a very good teacher and you can tell she loves what she does. But I am bothered that she won't let good, dedicated dancers into her company if she believes they'd stand out.
I love Ms.Jones! She has a slight temper, but that's b/c she takes dance VERY seriously. B/c so, she'll only take you seriously if YOU'RE serious and hard working about dance. Doesn't choose favorites, she just likes seeing hard work, dedication, and improvement. Respect the class and the art, she'll respect you. Her mom, who sadly passed away, taught her dance, so imagine her passion. Believe it or not, she actually knows all students' names. Advanced and Company are only for ppl who are ready!
I LOVE Ms. Jones!! She is so nice and fun and I look forward to dance more than any other class in the day. If she tells you that you're not ready for advanced, its not because she doesn't like you, its because she's a professional dance teacher and she knows from watching you every day whether you're ready or not. Just try hard and have enthusiasm and fun!
people don't tell you this truth in hopes of not hurting your feelings. Ms. Jones usually only accepts people who has had previous dance experience in her dance company. You should only consider auditioning if you are currently taking dance. If you don't she will cut you out for the second part of dance company tryouts. do a whole year of dance. However some people DO make company without taking dance/previous experience but this won't happen that often. Sorry to say of the sad truth.
I look forward to having dance ever day. It's the best class ever. In adv. dance, we actually have some book work. Mostly taking notes and writing about some dances. It's to benefit us in the future so we never forget what we learned. Yeah, she can be hard but it's for a purpose. She wants us to be disciplined in order for us to learn more. She's very knowledgeable. BTW, she's a licensed pilates instructor and her mother was a director of a dance studio. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE'S DOING!!!
Ms.Jones is one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. She doesn't play favorites at all! As long as you try and you work hard she will like you. She's a dance teacher but also a very caring a genuine person who cares about every single one of us in her dance class. Dance is not easy, but she makes it very fun.
I took one semester of beginners dance. It's not easy for Ms. Jones to teach and choreograph for so many classes and organize a concert by herself. In class, She would show us the movements/stretches/dances and we would just imitate her. Easy A, VERY easy A, as long as you participate.
I hated Ms Jones. Easy A, but she plays favorites. Only cares about people that have potential to join her dance company. Is condescending towards everyone else. Fake fake fake fake fake! I asked her a question regarding signing up for Adv after I took Int and she straight said to me "Unlike the other classes, I actually grade you based on technique. There's a lot of skilled dancers so if you're not good enough, you're not going to do well"
Easy A. Beg. Dance, just follow what she does and she won't correct you or give you a bad grade. I've been late to class so many times, and she didn't mark me absent. Towards the middle to the end of the semester, the class gets boring and you start to lose motivation to go.
I LOVE MS. JONES. All the people who say she plays favorites and is not helpful are WRONG. Ask her a question. ANY question. She will answer, and be happy to. She loves people who try in dance. DUH, SHE'S A DANCE TEACHER. And no, you don't have to be perfect at ballet for her to like you, or for you
LOVE MISS JONES!!! she does play favorites but she is still super nice to everyone. and i like that she doesnt just take dancers who have a whole bunch of training in dance into dance co and adv dance. if you show her you really love it then you def have a really good shot.
Class is fun and easy. Teaches dance steps well. But does not get to know the students personally. She's mostly very fun but she can get mad.
I don't think Ms. Jones plays favorites. I mean, if you work hard and put in the effort, it is an easy A. But, if you slack, then obviously you get a lower grade. She does have mood changes though...
She's like the only dance teacher, so there's not much of a choice. Her class is pretty easy and chill and its true she doesn't get to know any of the kids, probably only if you're good. Has a temper. In beg. dance, she didn't even try to correct you if you do something wrong. She just lets u do w.e
she certainly does not make an effort to get to know the students, but makes an effort to entertain us. is generally nice and easy going. supportive, but should give constructive criticism sometimes. dance is fun and relaxing. easy A.
She plays favorites and lets people into company who "have potential," which really means "are charismatic." She made the dance department too competitive and arrogant. People are nice but they're so arrogant and condescending because she treats them like her little pets.
Ms. Jones is fine. Dance is fun. However, in the beginning of the year at back to school night for the parents, one parent asked what was required for advanced dance and she said she would make it clear and teach us what we needed to know. I WAS THERE. Guess what? She didn't. overall, ok. dance :)
She's really nice, but she plays favorites and she's bias. If you can't do ballet, jazz, tap, or modern, you need to try really hard to get on her good side.
i don't understand the ppl who say she is mean. She's nice and really is helpful. Yes, you should put effort in; she will reward those who show they truly love dancing. choreography=slightly limited. overall, cool teacher. note: if you can dance well, try to go to advanced. other levels=very boring.
I used to love dance, but ever since having her, I'm starting to hate it. She is not helpful and plays favorites. She pretends to be so nice but encouraging, but she's not. She has constant mood changes and occasionally gives A. I would not reccommend her at all. She's mean too!
Ms. Jones is very helpful & nice. She'sfun and funny and has a ton of energy. If you have a question or a problem, she takes time to help you. I look forward to dance every day and my flexibility improved. It's my favorite class! You just have to put effort in.
dance is definitely not an easy A, because she plays favorites. she may seem nice on the outiside, but she's a very complicated person. she does treat us like little kids and she is not very helpful. at times she can be mean and bad tempered, other times, happy. mood always changing be careful avoid
she plays favorites. and if she knows your name, you're probaly a favorite. she only gives A's or A+'s to her favorite students. for beg dance, she doens't teach much. gives us very kiddy and basic stuf, probaly cuz she know half of us is here it for credit. she talks to us like kids, 8 yr olds;nice
She's a really good dance teacher and teaches a lot of styles. However, she does play favorites.
i love mrs.jones! she's really funny and she's always making jokes to our class (usually dance related of course). just show up dressed and with a positive attitude to work hard and dance! if she doesn't know your name, don't worry, it's not like she hates you or anything.
I love Ms. Jones!!! And all of you who says she plays favoritism, it's just because you thought that you can take dance and not try hard and still get an A to add to your perfect GPA. If you take dance you have to be open to it and try as hard as you would in any other class.
I love ms jones. I've had her for three years now and i look forward to her class every day. she does play favorites, but as long as you show up and make an effort, she will like you. TAKE DANCE!
wait, this is the first time I have decided to add something onto this which is saying something. I love Ms. Jones, sure she may play favorites, but you don't have to be on company for her to like you. Just be nice and respectful, and really don't be a slacker unless she loves you, because she won't take any of that. but TAKE MS. JONES, she's the best and soo much fun! espeacially in aerobics.
ms jones is VERY unfair. she plays favorites too much and doesnt realize that people who didn't take ballet for 10 years are not gonna be as good as people who did. She grades based on how you do, not how much effort you put in. Loses her temper quickly, is fake, and makes dance not as enjoyable. Otherwise, dancing is fun and you DO learn how to do certain things.
No, she really does play favorites, and the people who say she doesn't play favorites are her favorites.
She's a really good techaer and no matter what people say, she does not play favorites. She tries to help everyone improve, but its hard when there are 40 kids in her class. her choreography is really amazing and she doesn't just choreograph for one specific dance style; she varies from modern, jazz, ballet, and contemporary. If you hadn't taken dance before like me, she'll totally help you improve, and she cares a lot about studenta in all of her classes.
Plays favorites. She'll like you if you're in company or has a chance of being in company. Acts nice, but is extremely unfair. Take the class anyway, cus she can be fun sometimes.
Her class is pretty fun, esp. Advanced. If you don't already have a dance background, you'll have to work hard or be resigned to suckiness, though. It can be boring and very repetitive sometimes, though. And she picks favorites VERY heavily. Most don't get any personal attention. She screws people over in arena by over-enrolling her classes and turning away the students she doesn't care about (meaning, not in dance company or in her plans for the company).
Ms. Jones is the best. She plays favorites though :[ Her dance class is awesome. You learn and perfect your turns and etc, and you have fun. She goes fast on dance routines, but you practice them everyday, so you'll know them in time. Make sure you go to every dance concert, or school thing, or its a grade lower for you. xD I love Ms. Jones
this class is plainnn FUN .. at first i was like >__< I DON'T WANNNNNNA GO TO DANCE! but nowww i look forward to it everyday! takes some time getting used to .. but it's my favorite class now. she's a real sweetheart & she really teaches you how to dance & makes you look GREAT. =] I LOVE YA MS JONES :D
ms. jones is the BEST! shes such a sweetheart and a great dance teacher. she doesnt lose her temper easily (unless youre obnoxious but who wouldnt lose it then?)
ms jones plays favorites. if you are one of them then you will like her.
Ms. Jones is really REALLY nice, but she goes a little fast. If you don't understand then you should get help at free mods or something. They say she loses her temper easily, but I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully I pass the class. x_x -student
i learned alot. i build more balances and muscles. she goes a bit fast. you learn one step one day, and another the next. just practice for those who have trouble
Ms. Jones is super cool and a really good dancer/teacher, but she's starting to buckle down a bit on grading, so don't slack off!
shes the BEST DANCE TEACHER!all bcuz of her i joined dance.she taught the dance company- &theyre amazing. join dance it'll be fun! get a chance 2 join dance co.
