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 2 levels 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
Ladies & Gents,
We have a whole week of free coming up, starting today!
We have free open days going on in Maastricht from Tuesday until Friday. We provide the following levels:
The full schedule is available on the website. And for those of you looking for Beginner Bachata classes, we teach the Beginner Bachata steps in our Beginner Salsa classes.
We end the week with one last free open day on Sunday in Genk, where we will teach:
The schedule is also available on the website.
So if you would like to come check out our classes, this is the week to do that.
Hope to see you in class!
Ladies & Gentlemen,
We start our new classes next week, but I want to announce our new Choreography song before the new course starts.
Although we start next week, you are welcome to drop by on Wednesday, November 8th if you would like a sneak peek of what we will be doing.
So see you tomorrow or next week!
Welcome to the 3.0 version of the website! If all goes well you shouldn't be able to notice a difference with the previous version of the website, except that it loads faster now. With the aid of one of our most gracious dancers we have changed the back-end of the website so that it now loads faster while still delivering you the same content
But as it is with all launches, there might be a couple of slip-ups here ad there. Please let us know if a part of the website isn't working. It is about 90% complete now and we are working on the last 10%.
Thanks in advance if you find and report something!
Ladies & Gentlemen,
In this post I would like to explain the direction in which Just Jason is planning to go.
And it is with the utmost pride that I would like to (re)introduce you to 5 hard working individuals:
Together with myself we have been training for one and half years to bring you our first project: Flor Palida by Marc Anthony
This is our very first project and after a couple of dress-rehearsals we are really very happy with the outcome. This the first one of a whole line of projects I have been planning since the start of Just Jason and we’ve already started working on the second project. The idea is of course that strive to become better with each project.
We have decided to call the Just Jason show team: La Onda
La Onda means: The Ripple. The idea behind this is that we want to make a splash but we have no idea how far the ripples will reach. With every project we want to put up something different, inspired by the greats but still our own. We hope to bring this uniqueness through story-telling since every song has a story to tell.
The Just Jason Showteam also falls in the general vision of lifting the level of Salsa in the region with a strong emphasis of never ever losing our fun, which is why I chose these individuals for the team. We have laughed a lot, we have cried, we’ve been frustrated, we’ve had arguments big and small, but in the end we feel like a Salsa-family. Something I feel is very important and something we hope ripples out into the Limburg Salsa scene. No matter what you strive for, we are one big family that wants to enjoy dance.
And the most exciting part of this whole thing for me? If this is the result of our first work, man do I have a lot of plans for future projects. And if they work….. exciting prospects!
So if you please, come support us for the very first official performance on October 28th at our Double Anniversary Party.
Hope to see you there!
Just Jason & co
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, the 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!
