Dates for the Diary 2019
Hello everyone, we hope you are having a wonderful term of dancing! We have confirmed dates for 2019 and wanted to get these to you so you can have them in your diaries.
Sunday 26th May
The Jazz Factory Open Day
(Please note the change of date)
The Jazz Factory Open Day is a chance for all students to perform what they have been learning in class for their families and friends. As we don’t have open classes or parent watching weeks during term, this is a wonderful way to see all the great things your child has been learning. Each class will perform for 15 minutes throughout the day, as well as short performances from our Theatre Company and our Dance Company. The uniform shop will also be open on this day.
Please diarise the date and we will have a schedule out to you at the start of Term 2.

If you have any queries about classes, please direct these to Fiona in the office
Our teachers are focused on creating wonderful classes for your children but are not in the position to answer questions during class time. Please contact the office with all enquiries and Fiona will contact the teachers as necessary.
If you need to discuss anything with Kim, the Director, please contact her via email
Kim loves to say hi on her days at the studio, but rarely has the time to stop for a long chat, so sending an email is much better!
Please email the above address if you are going to miss class.
RESPECTING OUR NEIGHBOURS
Please be mindful that we share the level 2 of Gordon Centre with a number of other businesses. Students are not permitted to congregate in the common areas of level 2. Please also keep noise levels down when outside the studios. There is plenty of waiting space within our studio complex.
A reminder that we have a compulsory uniform at The Jazz Factory and this includes Winter items. The uniform shop is open on a Monday 4pm-6pm; Thursday 5pm-6pm and Saturday 9am-11am. Please ensure that all boys and girls are in correct uniform. Please also ensure that all hair is pulled back off the face for class.
The link below will take you to our private lesson calendar where you can see available times and available teachers to book and pay online. Private singing lessons are the best way for students to develop their voices and private dance lessons are a great way for students to work on things in a one-on-one environment.
