What do I wear on my first class?

Our studio colours are Black and Hot Pink, we do have a large variety of Maxi-Jazz uniforms in our Dance Retail Shop located within our Wallsend studio, otherwise you are welcome to wear anything that you already have at home within the studio colours. Your class teacher can advise you if it is suitable or not.

For a full list of suitable uniforms and shoes required for our classes and different styles, please see our Uniform page

For shoes, we recommend that you wear little black slip-on or canvas shoes, nothing chunky like joggers and definitely no jiffies as they are too slippery.

Once you have decided that Maxi-Jazz is the right studio for you and are happy to commit to the class/es, you will need to purchase the correct footwear for your class/es and make sure you have an appropriate uniform to wear to class each week.

Do students have to particpate in the end of year concert?

Upon registration, all students are automatically placed in our concerts. Imagine all students having the confidence to dance in front of their families and friends in their glitzy costumes with beautiful hair and make-up, to show off what they’ve been working towards all year in class. Our concert’s are designed to make all students feel like a star in a production, it’s all part of the overall experience here at Maxi-Jazz

Our mid-year concert is optional for all our students but is a great introduction to the stage with having no costumes or no hair or make-up. Just simply the students showcasing their talents and progression during Terms 1 and 2 for their family and friends.

This is a great opportunity for students to gain confidence and feel comfortable on stage with their fellow peers.

And the fun stuff!

Each term we hold a disco or a movie night for students to attend, as well as having an out of uniform day on the last week of each term.

These discos and movie nights are a great way for students to meet new friends outside of their classes and our out of uniform days have our students leaving for their school holidays on a positive note and eager and ready to come back to learn more.
Throughout the school holidays we also have themed Fundays where students and their siblings or friends can come along and dance, do crafts, cooking and other activities with lunch and snacks provided whilst getting to know their teachers and peers (and giving parents a well-deserved rest).

“Family orientated. Caring dedicated staff. Amazing concerts”
