The Paradox Process

About our classes

At Paradox Dance Studio we work on technique which is the essential part of learning to dance, then we work on 2 main choreographed pieces a year to perform at our mid and end-of-year show to showcase the skill, technique and conditioning they have learnt during class. Our choreography always highlights our Paradox style with international flavour and a modern twist!

About our classes

Kids Jazz Dance Classes

In kid’s jazz dance, children learn the basics of jazz dance, such as kicks, turns, and leaps, while incorporating playful and energetic movements that are appropriate for their age and skill level. The classes may also include stretching and conditioning exercises to help the children develop flexibility, strength, and coordination.



Kid’s jazz dance is an excellent way for children to express themselves creatively, develop their physical abilities, and improve their self-confidence. It is also a fun and social activity that allows children to interact with others and make new friends while learning a new skill.


The Modern Jazz Syllabus was revised in 2017. It contains a fantastic body of work choreographed and developed into a sound progressive, developmental sequence by Rachelle Conroy and Sandra Breen. Some of Australia’s leading artists have contributed their choreography to the syllabus in both exercises and routines. The work is contemporary, technically challenging and a great preparation in all forms of jazz for today’s performance demands. There are 11
Grades plus public performance awards and a Teachers’ Certificate & Teachers’ Diploma. The syllabus caters for children from 4 years up. CSTD Jazz is a nationally renowned syllabus for jazz dance.
