Ms. Jane

“The Spartan Foundation Salutes Jane Carter

It’s not often you earn an award that is considered the pinnacle of your profession. Well, this month San Jose State graduate Jane Carter did just that when she was honored in New York at the Capezio Ace Awards with the 2014 Dance Teacher Award as recognized by Board of Dance Teacher Magazine. Jane opened Dance Academy USA in 1990 with one studio in Sunnyvale. Today the business includes seven Bay Area studios and 1,600 students.

During her collegiate days, Jane was a member of the Spartan Spectrum Dance Team. Her skills earned her a spot with the 49ers Gold Rush Girls and Golden State Warrior Girls. In addition she went on to direct the Warrior Girls and the San Jose Saberkittens.

While our spotlight shines on Jane…she did not build this dance empire by herself. She met her husband Jim while attending SJSU. Jim was a three-year letter winner as an offensive lineman and as a senior in 1987 was All-League, and honorable mention All-American. His 1986 team was inducted into the San Jose State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2012. He has been in the Real Estate business for the past 25 years.

Jim and Jane Carter are Spartan Foundation members at the Blazer level. Congratulations to the success and leadership this dynamic couple demonstrates. Thank You Carter’s & Go Spartans!”
