Welcome to KJ Dance!
30 years of Kazzajazz Modern Dance Studio, now rebranded as KJ Dance have proved to be the most rewarding achievement for Dance Principal, Karen Lees.
The goal of building a positive & nurturing environment for all students that love dance has evolved, providing our amazing students with a home away from home, not just a dance studio, we are a family!
Whether you are just starting out your dance education or building on your current skill set, everyone is supported throughout their journey by our KJ Dance team, from toddlers through to adults.
KJ Dance has a focus on teaching correct techniques, building confident performers while using safe dance practices. All classes are taught by qualified, accredited and experienced teachers so you know your child is receiving quality tuition.
Dance Styles on Offer
We love to offer our students at KJ Dance the opportunity to participate in a wide range of styles including:
K Kompany is the name given to Troupes who represent KJ Dance in Eisteddfods & Competitions.
They also appear at various social events to promote KJ Dance as entertainment at community events (Carols in the City, Mall Shows & Dragons home games, Dreamworld, Seaworld, Movieworld & school fairs to name a few).
K Kompany can be very exciting as students build performance skills, perform along side Australia’s industry professionals & get to travel & compete with their friends. KJ Dance has a brilliant reputation with Troupes taking out first places at many major Competitions. Students find K Kompany a rewarding experience but it is not without some sacrifice.
On Wednesday afternoons & evenings, students learn choreography, rehearse & perfect their routines. Unless a student is ill they are expected to attend EVERY Wednesday. This means sometimes children miss school discos, birthday parties, etc because they have a commitment to K Kompany. Fantastic results do not happen without team work & every member must be present to achieve this. We do realise that occasionally a student may have a prior commitment or something rare that may clash, so private tuition is available for students at the usual fee. Parents also make a commitment to ensure their child practices & is confident with their routines, is present on Wednesdays & ensure their child is well presented & on time at Eisteddfods & performances. Students perform & compete in a minimum of 4 times per year & are expected to attend each time. K Kompany can be hard work however it is also very rewarding & students should be honoured to be included.
Entry into K Kompany is by invitation & audition.
There are certain criteria that students need to fulfil to become eligible.
Students must attend KJ Dance for a minimum of 12 months
- Students must attend a minimum 2 classes per week in 2 different styles

Once a student has been accepted into K Kompany they will be chosen to perform in the style that best suits them. Some students will compete in Jazz Troupes only; others may appear in ALL Troupes (Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Song & Dance etc).
