Are you looking for a dance class designed with the beginner in mind? The Beginner/Intermediate Jazz class starts at the beginning, leading new dancers through the basics of jazz dance technique while introducing new movement concepts each week. Inexperienced dancers will develop body awareness and confidence in a supportive environment. Dance conditioning, creative expression and dance routines round out each class, providing dancers with a complete dance education. Our goal with this program is to successfully transition new dancers into the intermediate/advanced dance programs at J'Adore Dance.
Registrations can be completed online or in person at the studio or over the phone (provided you already have an account with J’Adore Dance). Payment must be received at the time of registration.
Registrations canceled before the day of the first class are subject to a $25 + GST administrative fee. No refunds will be issued after the start date of the class, however, we will issue credit valid for 12 months from the start date of the canceled program if the registration is canceled before the third class of the session. No refunds or credit will be granted after the start of the third class other than for serious illness or injury with medical documentation provided. Cancellation requests must be received in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) and can only be processed by management.
