J-DAPA is a non-profit organization based in Johnston, Rhode Island that was founded in 2007 with the goal of providing affordable access to the performing arts. We offer programs for ages 3 to adult which include dance classes in lyrical, ballet, tap, hip – hop, jazz and acro, as well as acting classes and singing lessons.

The current COVID-19 crisis has forced J-DAPA to cancel or postpone a variety of fundraisers and performances. Your donations and support will allow us to stay afloat and to continue to pay our expenses during this difficult time. 

"Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much" - Helen Keller
