Information


Welcome to the website of Just Jason Dance Company. We are the in-house Salsa school of dance-school Bernaards and we organize Salsa classes, parties & socials in Maastricht. Team Jason consists of Jason, Saartje, Loes, Melissa, Boukje, Esther, as well as Ron & Jiska.

We also teach in Aachen on Monday for Dance Fusion Aachen and have started teaching in Genk as well on Sundays.

We pride ourselves to represent Salsa with a unique and effective structure, but we take the most pride in our trademark "Just Jason" atmosphere.

F.A.Q.




Dance Partner?

You do not need a dance partner to join our courses, however we do assign you a partner either through people that enroll or through our helper system. So please enroll on time when enrolling without a partner, preferably more than a week before classes start.

We always have people looking for a partner or willing to help out, as such we made a group specifically for this purpose.

To find a dance partner, join our Facebook group

Price?

All classes are 8 weeks (1 class a week)

We offer discounts for multiple classes

Do I need to sign up for the tryout class?

Every first class of a course is considered a tryout/open day

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

News

Hello everybody, We are currently working on our summer schedule. And in order to do that, we have asked you to fill in what you would like to see in terms of workshops and short summer courses. Thank you to all of you who did! We did have a comment about our online version though. You could only pick one when sometimes you would like to choose more options. So we have changed it so you can now pick multiple options. Please do so if you haven't already! Here is the link: https://zurl.co/mirt

About

Dancer, Teacher, Choreographer





Jason, the dancer & teacher

Hi there,

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.


Jason, the Salsa-DJ

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!


La Onda



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.
