Student Leadership Program

We love our Student Leadership Program here at MJDS and that we’re able to deliver a holistic program that develops students’ leadership, teaching, communication, time management, choreography, musicality, customer service, problem-solving skills and more! Not only are these skills valued in the studio and our classes, but in the real world as they prepare for their own careers, no matter what path or industry they choose!

Our passionate staff guide and encourage all student assistants throughout their assisting journey as we uncover the secrets to what it takes to become a successful teacher and positive role model, and the behind-the-scenes of running a dance studio.

Our Student Leaders love the opportunity to help out at performances, rehearsals and concerts, providing confidence, leadership skills and much more to ensure they are gaining a greater knowledge of the studio and what it offers our families.

At the start of each year we accept new applicants for our unique Student Assisting Program, which is also where a few of our current Senior Teachers started here at MJDS

Want to join our Student Leadership Program in 2021?

If you’re aged between 12 and 16 and have a passion for leadership and teaching, then please complete the expression of interest form below. 

As places are limited, we will be assessing each individual student before making our final decision to ensure we have the right fit for both our Assistant team and our students and families. 

Expression Of Interest LINK: https://forms.gle/kpnuhpyYF1PoYaDS6 

Applications close Sunday 10th January (inclusive of this day) and students will be notified soon after.

Please note that all successful applicants, an Introductory Leadership Meeting will be held in January at the studio which would require your attendance.

Competition Dance Teams

Here at MJDS, we feel that all students have the potential to be a great dancer and performer, and that our class and competition experience will only furthermore develop your love of dance and passion for performing. We are so excited to be able to offer these opportunities to our students and believe it strengthens our dance family and give students more confidence, experience, increased strength and skills and most importantly, teamwork!

We also love the fact that the core of our studio is performing and sharing our love of dance, which allows our competition students to also participate in our annual Dance Explosion Concert at the end of the year and truly experience the heart of what Maxi-Jazz has been known and loved for over 33 years.

Competition Cheer Teams

Cheerleading is a fantastic way of connecting a group of people together and it also promotes team building in a positive way.  Every member is important and there should never be any favouritism, because at the end of the day the flyers cannot fly without their bases and visa versa.  Being part of a cheerleading squad will give you brilliant team building skills and you will be able to carry these skills with you throughout your working life.  Being a good member of a team is a very valuable trait to have as a person and cheerleading is one of the best ways to practise these skills.

We love the fact at MJDS the core of our studio is performing and sharing our love of dance, which allows our competition students to also participate in our annual Dance Explosion Concert at the end of the year and truly experience the heart of what Maxi-Jazz has been known and loved for over 33 years.

Showtime Performance Teams

Our Showtime Performance Teams welcomes all our dedicated, committed and well-rounded dancers from Tweens upwards. Placement of the teams is based purely on the student’s technique, performance, improvement, basic dance terminology and knowledge, effort and attendance in classes and extra performances, not on the student’s age! 

Our performance teams will have the experience of learning more advanced techniques, combinations and training than our normal concert classes, the privilege of more performance opportunities such as the Newcastle Show, Mattara, Wallsend Winter Fair and the Wallsend Christmas Carols, and the challenge and excitement of more advanced and technically challenging routines which can vary from Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Pom or Musical Theatre, depending on your class and concert theme requirements.
