WELCOME TO JG DANCEJeannine Greville has been established in the Thames Valley for over 50 years, with many thousands of children passing through the doors. Many enrol for a few years, but others are enjoying very successful careers in the West-End, on television, with The Royal Ballet Company, Royal Shakespeare Company, and annually in Pantomime. A former pupil was nominated for a prestigious BAFTA award. We hold classes in nine venues, introducing girls and boys between the ages of two and a half and eighteen years to Ballet, Modern Jazz, Tap, National Dance, and Acrobatics. We also offer Drama, Singing, and Street Jazz in some venues. We have a Theatre College for those children who show outstanding potential, where the training is more specialised. It is held all day on Saturday, and entry is by twice yearly audition. At our weekly classes we welcome beginners, who are taught in friendly groups by qualified, experienced and very caring teachers, many of whom are former pupils, who give individual attention to each child. Shy children develop confidence, and extroverts have their energies channeled into a disciplined art. Above all, our classes are FUN! We are most fortunate to be affiliated to a well established Theatrical Agency based at the world famous Pinewood Studios. This gives pupils the opportunity to gain professional work on television and film. If your child is hoping for a career in show business, this could be a wonderful opportunity for them. All prospective pupils are offered a free trial lesson before committing themselves to enrol.
We are delighted to welcome our new RAD teacher Jo Hurst LRAD. In the very short time she has been with us, she has established herself as a caring and popular teacher. Her caring approach has sparked a new enthusiasm for this subject. We look forward to her being a part of the JG family for a long time to come. Thank you to everyone at JG dance Basingstoke for making so welcome.
