About

There's something about this place.

You’ll feel it when you’re working out in our state-of-the-art fitness center. When you’re sweating through a Pilates class. When you enroll your kids in our NAEYC-accredited preschool. And when you show up to your first class of Chocolate Hebrew.

The J is a special place. Founded on Jewish values, the JCC of Dallas empowers people of all ages and religious backgrounds to pursue wellness in mind, body and spirit.

We have programs for everyone – families and singles, children and teens, adults and seniors. Within our walls, members gather together to meet, play, learn, celebrate and be part of the community.

The J reserves the right to cancel a class if there is insufficient registration. If a class or activity is cancelled, you are notified and a full refund is processed automatically. Please allow three to four weeks to receive your refund.

If you cancel your enrollment in a class or activity before the first session, a $10 administrative fee is deducted from your refund. Once a class or activity has begun, or the deadline to cancel enrollment has passed, there are no refunds.
