It is with great pleasure in 2018 we celebrated 25 years of Jigsaw Dance.
From humble beginnings Jigsaw Dance Studio grew from one child asking Miss Jen to teacher her lessons from here parents garage in a small suburb named Kellyville. Well before the massive growth in the Kellyville area, Jen started her studio and named it Jigsaw Dance. The name was inspired from her initials Jennfer Dalton….J.D….Jigsaw Dance. Now Jigsaw Dance Studio operates from 6 studios across the Hills District and North Shore. We are so proud to have been doing what we love for so many years now. In 2018 we celebrate as a studio our past, our successes and our future.
A little about our story:
“Many years ago a parent approached Jen when she was 13 years old and asked her to teach her daughter to dance. She eagerly accepted and started lessons in her family garage. Her start from one student quickly grew and when she was 16 she knew that she wanted to share her passion and joy of dancing and music with other children.
After completing her HSC and leaving school Jen built on her growing number of students and started Jigsaw Dance. She decided from the beginning that she wanted her students to learn to dance in a non-competitive environment and develop the “whole” child, not only by teaching them to dance but by building on their self confidence with a positive mind and body image. Although classes are structured, they are conducted in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and allows children at all levels to enjoy dancing. The decision to start singing/drama classes is a natural progression to give children an even broader exposure to music and dance.
After 25 years of teaching, Jen has found one of the most rewarding and humbling aspects of her career is when students she has taught in the past are now bringing their children to her to learn to dance, thereby continuing to share the love of dance.”
