American Jazz Dance Affiliation

Our Courses

The American Jazz Dance Affiliation holds a teacher and student Congress bi-annually at New Zealand School of Dance in Wellington. The Congress is for all teachers of AJDA, their assistant teachers plus all students from Elementary Level Three to Advanced Level Two.

This is held in the July school holidays and is an excellent opportunity for all teachers and students to prepare for their examinations. It is a great way to assess how your students are progressing alongside other studios throughout New Zealand.

The Congress is an intensive 3 day workshop covering all the AJDA Syllabus work. We also employ a variety of guest tutors to ensure a professional workshop full of inspiration and motivation for the lead up to examinations.

“The small child at dancing class may never become a professional dancer – but the courtesies and disciplines, as well as the joy in movement, will touch her forever.”
