Jazz Dance Classes

The Joanne Grace school of dance features jazz ballet classes as one of our key disciplines.

While Jazz can be a slow paced, smooth, style of dance, for the most part it is a fast paced, energetic, and most of all a fun style

Technique is the foundation for all Jazz movement, using the bodies centre control to maintain balance and execute powerful movement. This is why a strong background in ballet is needed to excel in this style of dance.  The music choice often determines  the movement – students are given as much variety across all sub sections of the style.

Our dance studio based in the Illawarra / Wollongong area offers jazz ballet lessons to all levels including both recreational (Junior and Intermediate) and competitive classes (across all age groups)  in this style.

Get in touch with the dance studio to arrange a free trial jazz dance lesson.



Professional, highly qualified studio who support kids from recreational level right up to the elite level and beyond. Joanne has become a significant “lighthouse” to our son over eight years, and will continue to do so as he moves forward with his training. Highly recommended!


All my daughters have danced here, they have formed life long friendships while receiving the best teaching within 100kms, I wouldn't trust my children with anyone else.


Our little one loves Joanne Grace. She started in Ready Set Dance and is now moving to Ballet. During COVID we were worried about lessons and her falling behind. The school were great at communicating and keeping us up to date about developments and making sure the kids were safe. While we are not typically a 'dance' family, the end of year concert was absolutely amazing. We loved seeing our little one shine on the stage. You can tell the years of experience at this top level, as it really showed at the performances.
