Each week our classes are a journey of imagination, creation and education. Along the way, our dancers develop new skills, confidence and friendships through the passionate guidance of our teachers. We encourage creative thinking and exploration while our dancers get to feel a sense of pride, excitement & fun and most importantly feel like the most important dancer in the room.
During our classes we jump, hop, stamp, point, roll, fly, sing, laugh out loud and grow into plants reaching towards the sun. We use hula hoop, bean bags on our heads, fairy wands, scalves, balls and much, much more.
Our Jigsaw Jnr Dance Program incorporates all these elements combining dance, drama, games, props …but most of all, lots of fun and laughter. This program has been specifically developed to enhance strength, flexibility, co-ordination & dance technique.
When we dance & sing it stimulates our whole brain, as does using props, creative drama games and moving to music. It lifts mood and brings joy releasing endorphins.
Our teachers who teach this program, have been hand selected and trained not only in the curriculum but how to engage and involve every single dancer in the room. This is very important as the expectation of our weekly meeting with our dancers is to be an amazing and positive experience EVERY time.
Don’t worry if you think your little one is shy or may not join in, we have had many years of working and encouraging little ones and ensuring they feel comfortable to the point that they will stand at the door and wave goodbye to you.
Class sizes are capped so if you register for a class that is full, you will go on a waiting list and I will contact you as soon as a position becomes available.
All our Jigsaw Jnr classes are 30 minutes offered to little ones not yet at school. We are offering mornings, afternoons and Saturday mornings.
JIGSAW JNR RAINBOW CONNECTION (My Love and Me) – This is a beautiful opportunity for you and your little one to start the music and movement appreciation process. Together you and your little one will play with musical instruments, use fun props while singing and dancing together. (No uniform, concerts or costume required for this class)
JIGSAW JNR JAZZ – Our jazz classes are fun and energy filled including basic movement, co-ordination, singing and drama to familiar music. It gives children a chance to develop their ear for music and feet for dancing, starting at the age most crucial.
JIGSAW JNR BALLET – Our ballet classes have the same fun and energy of our Jazz classes, but also incorporates the beginnings of ballet techniques allowing a gentle introduction to the world of tippy toes and twirls. Dancers are taught correct technical skills and ‘French’ ballet names for steps and movements – so we have classes of 2-5yr olds speaking French each week!
JIGSAW JNR HIP HOP/JFH (Jazz/Funk/Hip Hop) – Our Hip Hop and JFH classes use funky music and hip moves giving our dancers an introduction to modern moves and techniques.
JIGSAW JNR TUMBLING TOTS/MINI ACRO – Our Tumbling Tots/Mini Acro program is great for upper body strength, balance, flexibility, exploration and co-ordination including bunny hops, barrel rolls & somersaults while using the soft play, balance beam and mini tramp….

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT JIGSAW JUNIORS
Can mum & dad watch the class? First time parents of the younger groups may watch the beginning of the first class to help settle dancers in. After this we find that the children respond much better without parents and siblings in the studio. However, after many years of experience, special tactics are used for those who have trouble separating from their parents, so don’t worry if it takes your dancer a couple of weeks to feel comfortable and participate.
At Jigsaw HQ, we have viewing windows where parent can watch the classes from the waiting area.
In the final week of Term 1 and 3, we have parent participation week. This is where you can come and join in with your dancers as they teach you the moves they have learnt through-out the term.
Is it compulsory to participate in the mid-year & end of year concert? Our concerts are not compulsory but highly recommended. It’s a fun and entertaining experience for everyone involved and a great way for your dancer to show off all their hard work they have done throughout the year. Our concerts are designed to be pressure free and as relaxed as possible for everyone involved.
Our mid-year concert is usually held the week before the June/July School Holiday and our end of year concert is usually the 2nd Sunday in November, so the dancing year finishes before the massive rush and commitments of Christmas start.
Can I enroll after the dancing year has started? Yes – we accept new students throughout the year. Just email us at: email@example.com for an information sheet and timetable.
Do I need to buy a dance uniform or shoes before I enroll? No – dancers trying classes for the first time are encouraged to come in comfy clothes and sneakers. Uniform can either be purchased online through our website www.jigsawdance.com.au or we have stock at the studio so you have an opportunity to be fitted on your trial day.
