Throughout our experience over the past 30 years and with the support of our families, our classes at Maxi-Jazz are purely focused on learning for our students. To ensure that this learning environment is 100% right for them, our studio rooms and classes are exclusive for our students only.

Our families at Maxi-Jazz absolutely love the class progression notes they receive on the amazing parent portal, and are thrilled to look at the videos and photos that they receive each year.

Here at Maxi-Jazz we believe that we offer a quality dance education for all students and we’re proud to stand behind our curriculum and classes.

We understand that choosing the right dance studio for your family is important, and that’s why we’re offering all NEW students to Maxi-Jazz a Introductory Month with a Money Back Guarantee! We are sure that you will love our teachers, classes and feel a part of our dance family straight away. 

As new students and their families enter our MJDS dance family, they will be welcomed and supported by our nurturing team. Each student will settle in their classes an become familiar with their new environment, teachers and class curriculum over these first few weeks, which is why we offer this introductory month, instead of just one lesson.

However, if after one month you feel the student did not receive any positive outcome and gain confidence within the classroom, we will happily refund you your monthly fee. 

The Introductory Month Money Back Guarantee is based on the following conditions;

– Any student new to Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio can enrol for an Introductory Month of Dance in ANY chosen class/es, within the relevant age group. One full month’s tuition will be charged to your account (per class) and must be paid in full prior to the commencement of your first class. Upon completion of your introductory month, fees will continue to be charged to your account for the remainder of the dance season as per policy 1.5 in our full T&C’s and debited from your nominated credit card as per our Auto-Pay procedures outlined in policies 1.8 & 1.10. Any applicable catch up fees (as per policy 1.7) will also be charged to your account at this time and debited as a part of your next months payment. However, if you feel that Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio is not the right studio for you and your family, written notification must be provided by the 14th of the current month, and no further tuition or catch up fees will be charged to your account. You will continue to be charged for classes until written notification has been received. Written notification is accepted only as an email to maxijazzdancestudio@hotmail.com.

– Students must participate in each and every enrolled class/es in its entirety, during the month (30 days) from their first class

– The introductory month start from the 1st of each month and finishes at the conclusion of the month, no matter what the start date for the student is (eg, is a student wishes to join in the 2nd week of the month, th full month fee will still be required and the first lesson will be forfeited). Due to this reason,we recommend students start at the beginning of the month to ensure the full benefit of the Introductory Month.

– A full refund will be given from enrolled and attended classes within the month (30 days) excluding the $35 catch up fee as this portion is allocated to help cover your annual MJDS Registration which is still required to be paid for insurance liabilities. 

– After the completion of the one month (30 days) period of which the student had first started, this guarantee is null and void

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.

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.

STAR Package – Enhancement Program

Our Star Package is for our dedicated students who wish to develop their dance skills and techniques and work hard for faster progression. This package allows students to take advantage of UNLIMITED Technique classes within Maxi-Jazz for this season which will truly allow them to thrive. 

As well as unlimited technique classes, students will be able to engage with an Enhancement Teacher with three 45 minute private lessons held during the school holidays in terms 1, 2 and 3. Private lessons hold so many benefits to our dancers including one-on-one instruction and guidance and personalized feedback for growth. Students can choose to use their private lessons on their Competition or Showtime routines, or to further develop their skills and technique or learn new ones!

As we have our own Performance Teams, these groups are invited to do several performances throughout the year at different venues. However, most of these community events are open to our normal classes as well, such as the Wallsend Winter Fair, Mattara Festival and the Wallsend Family Christmas Carols.

This is a great opportunity for all students to get out there in the community and perform on stage, build their confidence and prepare them for the end of year concert with performing in front of an audience. These opportunities for normal groups depend on if the class routines are finished and performance ready and costumes are done and ready to wear.

While we attempt to give all classes an opportunity to perform, each performance or event requirements vary. Due to this, only certain classes are invited to perform as staff carefully consider the suitability of routines, style, ages or music theme along with the venue not offering suitable staging for some styles (for tap example).

We will only be performing routines from this year that are performance ready, have their costumes completed and have enough students to perform.

And the fun stuff!

Each term we hold a range of events for students to attend. These include a disco and movie nights, out of uniform week and fundays. 

Discos and movie nights are a great way for students to meet new friends outside of their classes and workshops are great to try new styles and improve on and develop your technique and skills furthermore. 

Our Fundays are exactly that, a day full of fun! Students and their siblings or friends can come along and dance, complete crafts and participate in a range of activities with lunch and snacks provided.

We have a variety of events during the dance season to make sure we cater for all our wonderful students, from the littlest ones at age 2, right up to our adults, including our parents that wish to partake in the fun!
