Read What Some Of Our Members Have to Say About CSJ
"I am raising my Grand daughter, Alden Mc Nabb, who has been attending Community Street Jam After School Club for over four years now. She just turned 8 years old. I cannot express to you how much of an impact this program has made on her life. CSJ is like a family. One for all and all for one. Barbara and her staff give each child the love and attention they need. It is so exciting to see each child thrive and grow with the programs that are offered. When you see the children dance and perform you see smiles on their faces. They are having a wonderful time."

"I really enjoyed my experience at CSJ - it opened my life to fitness and dance although I was not an athletic person or dancer growing up. At first I joined just for tap dancing as I always wanted to try it growing up, next thing I know I was dancing zumba, belly dance, hula, ballet, and West African dance. Never in my life would I have thought I would be doing all these types of dances. It was a great way to stay in shape and be healthy while having fun at the same time. Barbara, the owner, is very caring and she made me feel not just like another member but part of a family. I would recommend CSJ to any one because it's an experience you will never forget."

"I love to workout and since my high school days I have been working out at various gyms. I was accustomed to the impersonal environment that is found at most mainstream, franchise gyms and so when I came to CSJ I truly didn't know what to expect. I was definitely surprised when the owner, Barbara, came up to me on the first day and asked me how I was doing and how the workout was going. I was really impressed that she took the time to get to know me and through the next few months she became less of a fitness club owner and more of a friend. This was also true about the instructors and all the other staff members. CSJ is like a family, you come to work out but you also come to see your friends. I am not a dancer but the few times I actually tried some dance classes, although I had two left feet, I was always given positive encouragement that made me want to try again. I eventually decided to stick to weight training only and I wasn't made to feel different because I didn't want to dance and I was always given encouragement to work out harder. This is the impression I will take with me from CSJ and the great memories will be with me forever. My hope is that more and more members join so that the business can keep growing because the environment and classes offered make CSJ a priceless gem in the Bay Area. Please keep doing what you're doing CSJ because you guys are awesome."
"I discovered CSJ in the early 90's, when Barb Miron started including dance choreo in our Saturday aeobics class at what was then Dennis Nelson's. It was so much fun that I started attending her Friday Night Funk events at the Redwood Roller Rink and then joined the performance team. I have been hooked ever since! The community spirit, devotion to excellence, and just crazy fun that IS CSJ has made me a fan for life. No matter what your fitness level or dance-abilty, you will want to keep coming back. Sincerely,
- Cynthia Kibbe Owner, Cynthia's Costumes and Parties
"I've been working out with Barb since 1989 and have appreciated her attention to detail and ability to provide the most up to date information on exercise, dance and fitness. CSJ is a great place to pursue personal fitness goals, make new friends and try a wide variety of dance forms. The teachers are all top-notch and Barb personally ensures that the caliber she expects is maintained. Working out at CSJ 4 - 5 times a week keeps me sane in a crazy world!"
