These qualifications are fully recognised and can be converted to UCAS points upon application to university.

We are also the first and only school in the UK to offer American Ballet Theatre classes and examinations.

Acrobatics, Aerial Arts + Tumbling

Our Acrobatics classes work towards achieving medals, awards and statuettes at our DDA award sessions. We have an 8m inflatable Tumble Track, Aerial Rig with Silks and Aerial Hoop/Lyra, and crash mats to help students develop their tricks and skills in these classes. Previous acrobatics, Aerial arts and tumbling students have toured the world in Circuses and performed in events and shows worldwide.

My daughter has been attending JVS for 6 years and she loves it here. Having started aged 2 the classes have helped her make friends and grow in confidence in addition to teaching her dance. The place is professionally ran but has a real family feel, and the annual show is a sight to see. 100% recommended.

Commercial

Commercal at JVS is an exciting and upbeat class that takes inspiration from dance often seen in the media e.g. Music videos and backing dancing. There is a focus on dynamic movement, expression and core strength throughout the classes, using music from the charts to create a challenging yet fun atmosphere.

Contemporary

Contemporary classes at JVS are centered around strong release based technique, encouraging students to let go of tension in their bodies whilst maintaining a strong core base and connection with the floor. Experimenting with new choreography and concepts brings the students to a fresh understanding of technique and expression.

Drama

Our Drama students perform in events and competitions locally throughout the year and study towards examinations with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts LAMDA.

Competitions

At JVS all of our students are given the opportunity to take part in competitions if they wish. We compete in Solo, Duet, Trio, Quartet, Group and Troupe categories in both local festivals and 'All England' qualifying festivals with students moving forward to the semi-finals and finals.

 

We have had alumni continue their progression in competitions as far as the Genee International Ballet Competition Finals and the BBC Young Dancer  Finals.
