Jazz Dance is a fun, highly skilled and very powerful form of dance and very popular in the world of musical theatre.

Jazz is not free form, it has its own rules just like Ballet. The Jill Clewes Academy for Performing Arts enthusiastically promotes the British Ballet Organisation (BBO) Jazz syllabus created by Peter Salmon and Jane Darling and the Pre-Primary Jazz syllabus developed by our Principal Janine Clewes.

Jazz training gives students a free and flexible body, the ability to isolate all its separate parts, and to adapt to any style required by teachers,choreographers or at auditions. It’s an excellent foundation for all musical theatre performers.

Whether just for a hobby or as a career in the theatre,Jazz training, combined with Ballet is probably the finest foundations a pupil can get.
