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 Saturday for Dance Fusion Aachen and have recently 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. We provide 2 levels of Bachata, 5 levels of Salsa and 1 level of Zouk on different days of the week. All of them built with solid techniques and an informal & above all fun atmosphere.
You get a discount for two classes and we have a set price if you take three or more classes
|Number of classes||Price|
|One Course||€ 60|
|Two Courses||€ 110|
|Three or more Courses||€ 150|
Our online store offers vouchers/gift cards for those of you looking to gift someone a (private) class . These vouchers are available from €10 until €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
A quick reminder that there are no classes this week. There are a couple of people coming to practice on Wednesday at 20:00 and our Social will proceed normally!
So see you all Wednesday.
Thank you for a very nice 1st week/open day. Thanks to all of you Just Jason is thriving! To anybody that couldn't make it during the first week, we still allow sign-ups during the 2nd week. After that we ask that you sign up for the classes starting in November so we can keep the structure that keeps the quality of the classes high.
Thanks again and see you all soon!

Our regular classes start again in September. We start our regular classes and we have added Monday-classes as well. So now we have classes from Monday to Friday and on top of that, Zouk is back in the line-up. We've found zouk-teachers willing to teach an intermediate group for us on Wednesday-evenings. We've also been able to add Bachata Beginners & Bachata intermediate to our line-up as well. So check out our full schedule for exact times.
Our choreo-song for the start of the season will be We don't talk anymore by Mandinga. Also, we'll be teaching this class in Genk as well, so we hope to see our Genk people join in the Choreography fun as well
Hope to see you all in class!
Jason & Team Jason
A quick reminder that there are no classes next week, nor is there a social on Wednesday. (June 25th -28th)
Next week we're back again in full force!

Ladies & Gents,
Due to a scheduling mishap, we can only do 4 classes on Fridays instead of the planned 5. That means that we the most logical thing to do is teach a 4-week Bachata Beginners course instead of a Salsa Beginners course. The rest of the schedule stays the same, so the courses on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday will still last 6 weeks.
Check the website for the full schedule and all other information.
Sorry for the last-minute change, but we just found out about this. On the plus side: we are now teaching Bachata beginners! Our other Beginner classes on Tuesdays (19:30) and Thursdays (20:30) will proceed normally.
We have two parties going on this weekend.
First, we have DJ Jason at Tropicana on Saturday in Beek in the Netherlands
And then we have a workshop by Just Jason as well as a performance by La Onda on Sunday at Colour up your Sunday in Cologne, Germany.
So come party with us if you can. See you Saturday or Sunday!!
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.
