Specialist Jazz Dance Centre
The Jazz Factory, established in 1993, is the North Shore’s premier Dance Centre specialising in commercial dance styles. We run classes for children of all ages and levels of dance training and experience.
Our aim is to foster a love of dance and provide quality dance training for students seeking fun and fitness as well as those dreaming of a career in dance!.
Students can take once a week classes in jazz, hip hop and glee club, as well as classes in lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, commercial jazz, acro dance and classical foundations.
Select senior exam students are invited into our Assistant teacher program, assisting qualified teachers as they prepare to gain their teaching diploma.
Our Artistic Director at the Jazz Factory, Kim Dresner, has trained in all forms of dance, as well as theatre and music. Kim has taught dance for many years both in Australia and overseas. She is a qualified Associate Teacher with the ATOD. All teachers at the Jazz Factory are experienced teachers who are passionate about dancing and passing on their passion for dancing to the students.
Jazz Factory students regularly receive prizes at all major Sydney and regional eisteddfods, as well at State and Australasian Championship levels. 95% of all examination students have received Honours Plus or Honours with Distinction gradings.
Former students have danced with the Sydney Dance Company, Bondi Ballet, the Compañia Nacional de Danza in Madrid, Bollywood, Cruise Ships and ADT (Australian Dance Theatre) and have undertaken further dance study at HSC and university level.
