Joel is a visionary. As the artistic director of Joel Hall Dancers and Center, he has created more then "just a dance studio". He has created an epicenter for social and cultural exchange.
Literally, everyone who walks through his door, knows they are in a special place where they are accepted for who they are.
Joel Hall Dancers and Center is about more than just dance (even though the dance training is superior and second to none), it's a place where literally everyone can come to collaborate and no one walks away without learning something about themselves or their neighbor. In my opinion, this makes Joel Hall Dancers and Center stand out not only as a dance studio but as a community gem.
When you meet Joel and his staff, you will realize they are serious about dance, dedicated to the art form and deeply caring about their students.
I have been dancing at Joel Hall Dancers and Center for almost 8 years and it has changed my life. I'm forever appreciative and in awe of his center and I know many of my peers would say the same.
Every time I take class somewhere else, I am asked about my training and complimented on the quality of my technique.
Thank you Joel Hall for your vision and dedication to your community and the art of Dance. You truly are a treasure!See MoreRead Less

memorable collaboration that will be enjoyed by all. His rates are very reasonable. His talent goes along with weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and religious gatherings. I was extremely pleased working with him for our wedding reception.See MoreRead Less
Scott is a rare human being. I directed him in one video shoot, and shot video with his direction and him as a star in two others. He has an uncanny ability to know exactly how he appears on camera, and his ideas are always fresh. Scott is always coming up with unique but solid ideas, and he never shrinks from a new opportunity. His work ethic is second to none.See MoreRead Less
Anna's creativity and use of color makes her art very unique. Her book, Everyone Hoops But Me, is delightful. The pictures and story are very appealing to kids of all ages. I watched children's faces light up as they listened and looked at the illustrations. The kids loved the book. All of Anna's art is very creative and unique. It's beautiful and makes me smile.See MoreRead Less
I have known Elizabeth for many years as a friend and as a poetess. She has a great insight into the human condition and a gift for interpreting and sharing that insight. She is a compassionate, thoughtful and creative individual who also knows the meaning of friendship. I consider it a great honor to have known her for so long and to call her my friend through all these years.See MoreRead Less
Esmie is a master at her craft, not only writing deeply personal, poignant, and varied pieces but performing them from memory so as to connect with the audience at an even deeper level. Her themes are universal although her experiences are unique and so reading or seeing her perform one of her poems is soul-stirring and therapeutic for all who have the honor of bearing witness. Esmie stimulates us affectively, but also raises the bar as far as writing within the genre; her metaphors are brilliant and she weaves in alliteration and other poetic devices to tantalize those of us who enjoy the wordplay as much as the sentiment behind poetic pieces. In a line-up of all-star spoken word artists, she is a constant, crowd-pleasing favorite, as she brings tremendous authenticity honoring the various aspects of her identity as woman, daughter, lover, and Latina and she shows that there is true strength in vulnerability. One of the most courageous people I've ever met, and easily one of my all-time favorite writers, locally and otherwise.See MoreRead Less
Sylvia has been a great friend for over ten years. I have seen her grow as a person and as a recording artist and producer. She is a very smart and articulate woman. She lights up the room wherever she goes and her smile is infectuous. She has a sense of humor out of this world and actually missed her calling as a stand-up-comic. Sylvia is a professional at all times and takes her craft very seriously. Sylvia has the kind of voice that will up-lift and encourage you at the same time. FIVE STARS TO SYL!See MoreRead Less
