HALL OF FAME

01. THE MARY-JO SWANSON PERPETUAL TROPHY

This is the Jazz Factory’s most prestigious award. Chosen by our trophy day judge, it is announced each year at The Jazz Factory’s annual concert and is presented to the student who demonstrates outstanding ability and promise. The award is named after Hanne’s former neighbour and artistic inspiration Mary-Jo Swanson (1931-1993), who would be so proud of all the students and their achievements. Students who have won the award in the past two years are not eligible.

In 2016 The Jazz Factory created a new award called The Rising Star Award. This award is selected by both the Trophy Day Judge and The Jazz Factory teachers and presented to a student from our Junior Trophy Day, who shows huge promise and potential. Rising star recipients automatically receive a place in our Dance Company and are rewarded with a half scholarship for their tuition.
