Young JAC Training Programme

YJT is our newest training programme for students ages 6-16 years which provides a wide range of classes catered to new artists within an amateur level of training (no experience needed). YJT classes for each level are held up to two days a week and include ballet training accessing the Vaganova method, as well as creative movement and music appreciation that is both fun and familiarises students with Martha Graham (contemporary artist) principles. The programme is open to students ages 6 through 16 at various levels, and includes a yearly showcase event.

Our YJT programme is taught by a team of highly skilled and experienced dance instructors who are currently working as professional dancers themselves, providing students with a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best in the industry.
