At JAMZ, we categorize most of our classes by level. These levels are based on skill & ability rather than age.
As students grow older, some may progress faster or slower based on their personal journey.
Our faculty will always strive to help prepare each student for the next level, but also understand that each individual may need some extra time at one level rather than another.
Every student is observed for progress every year so that they can be placed in the class that offers them the best possible opportunity for growth.
Because of this, there may be a variety of ages at each stage in order to match students with similar ability and work ethic.
If you would like recommendations for what level your child should be in, please contact us today for a free consultation.

Jazz is commonly taught in dance schools and performed by dance companies around the world. It continues to be an essential element of musical theater choreography, and is often interwoven with other dance styles as appropriate. It focuses on body isolations, stretching, turns, and leaps while continuing to incorporate traditional ballet technique.
Modern dance is a broad genre of western concert or theatrical dance. It is often considered to have emerged as a rejection of, or rebellion against classical ballet.
Musical theater dance is a combination of spoken dialogue, acting, singing and dance. In addition, it is the emotional content of a musical communicated through dance in an artistic fashion.
Tap was developed in the United States during the nineteenth century and is popular today in many parts of the world. The name comes from the tapping sound made when the small metal plates on the dancer’s shoes touch a hard floor. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician.
