Welcome to the website of Just Jason Dance Company. I organise Salsa classes, parties & socials in Maastricht. Helping me teach these dance-classes are Saartje, Loes, Melissa, Boukje, Esther, Simone as well as Ron & Jiska. I currently also teach in Aachen on Saturday with Yuting. Check out Dance Fusion Aachen for more information on the classes in Aachen.
We pride ourselves to represent Salsa not just with classes that are rooted in solid technical know-how, but also in the homey and “loose” feel we have in everything we do. We provide 1 level of Bachata and 5 levels of Salsa on different days of the week. All of them built with solid techniques and an informal & fun atmosphere.
All classes last 8 weeks and cost €60 unless noted otherwise. Discounts are available for taking multiple classes at the same time.
|Number of classes||Price|
|One Class||€ 60|
|Two Classes||€ 110|
|Three or more classes||€ 150|
You don’t need to sign up for the tryout class, you can just drop by and sign up for the course afterward
Signing up does guarantee you a spot in the course if classes are too full and a dance-partner
Once again a quick reminder that there are no classes this week. We start regular classes on Friday, February 16th.
But we do have an extra practice night planned on Wednesday February 14th at 20:00 which is open to everybody from all levels!
So drop by so you can get your practice on before the social!
Thank you to all who joined or open days. We always get requests to join the courses after the open days and if you are wondering if you can still join the classes this week if you sign up of course.
So if you're still looking to sign up, fill in the form here and we'll take care of the rest.
See you in class!
We start new classes next week! As usual the first class is also a free try-out class. You can sign up after this first class, but reservations for dance-partners are for those that have already signed up of course.
For our returning dancers, don't forget that you get a €10 introductory discount per person that you introduce to Just Jason and that end up actually taking classes.
So spread the word! You can easily invite people to our event on facebook so they can decide for themselves whether the schedule works out for them. (don't forget that we don't offer beginner classes in Genk for the moment)
Hope to see you in class!
My name is Jason Leckie and I was born and raised in Suriname on sunshine, videogames and dancing. At the age of 19 I came to the Netherlands to study medicine. I ended up studying Biological Health sciences and afterwards Health Education and Promotion. The latter felt more at home to me than the previous and although both these choices were pretty logical ones, they didn't quite feel as right to me as my next choice in life.
It was on the dance floor where I truly felt alive. Something I believe I inherited from my Father. I later found out I had a inborn talent for teaching, something I might have derived from my Mom who is a teacher of English. I started my teaching career when I was asked to teach for the school I was taking classes at. After teaching at that school for 3 years I co-founded a dance school where I could set up my own structure and teach according to my own philosophy. But due to personal reasons I left that dance school after 7 years of working hard to establish our name.
The reasons why I left had nothing to do with the philosophy of that dance school. There was a vision for the school: providing high quality, high level dancing compliant to international standards while never ever forgetting why we dance: To have fun. The injection of Caribbean culture in the classes always ensured that there was a warmth, a Love, a homey feeling emanating from everything we did back then.
That philosophy has not and will not change for Just Jason Dance Company.
During this time I developed my knowledge of Salsa music in order to be able to create the right atmosphere at any Salsa party. As a DJ and dance school owner I was involved in various parties in de Kadans as well as Bernaards. Being resident DJ at the weekly social at De Kadans pushed me to develop my DJ skills & music knowledge. I am very happy to have successfully continued this weekly social at Bernaards with our very own Wednesday Salsa Night. Whether DJ-ing for my own event, or at my bookings, I always try to inject my energy and ability to read the crowd to ensure a fun-filled, energetic evening.
I have now teamed up with Dance Center Bernaards to become a full in-house partner. All classes and parties are now housed by Dance Center Bernaards!
In 2016 I started, together with 5 motivated dancers, to train towards a goal, a dream. A dream that would motivate all dancers in the vicinity to also strive towards that goal. The goal? To get the best out of yourself, to push yourself to the limits, to grow, but most of all to enjoy what you are doing: dancing.
In the past few years we have each worked hard on ourselves as dancers and as a team and we have set up the show team La Onda. La Onda stands for 'the wave' or 'the ripple', because we have started something, we created a ripple in the water and we do not know how far this ripple will reach. Maybe this ripple will become a wave that will cover Limburg or maybe even the whole world.
