Our Enhancement Programs

Enhancement Dance Teams

Here at MJDS, we feel that all students have the potential to be a great dancer and performer, and that our Enhancement Dance Team 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 gives 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 EP Dancers to not only compete in local competitions, but have the opportunity to also partake in local eisteddfods and local community performances. Our EP dancers will 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 34 years.

Enhancement 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 vice 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 that at MJDS the core of our studio is performing and sharing our love of dance, which allows our EP Cheerleaders, just like our dancers, to not only compete in local competitions, but have the opportunity to also partake in local eisteddfods and local community performances. Our EP cheerleaders will 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 34 years. 

 

Dance Doubles  

Dance Doubles are available for Enhancement program students only and will be offered from Term 2. 

Our Dance Double students will be able to compete in local competitions and eisteddfods, with a choice on which ones you will attend. 

Students will also be able to choose either Jazz, Hip Hop or Pom for their styles, or for those duos that are ready to enhance their experience to the next level, you could do all 3! 

No matter the experience you chose within your dance double, the duo will be required to take weekly private lessons as well as your normal EP requirements. 

More information will be available towards the end of Term 1 as we start to prepare availability for teachers and students, as well as upcoming competitions and eisteddfods.

 

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
