Decidedly Jazz Danceworks
Rooted in the history of jazz dance and music, DJD is constantly innovating and evolving this art form. DJD, a registered charity, is a professional dance company that creates original performances, at least one per year with live music. DJD also offers professional training to those wishing to specialize in jazz dance, outreach programs that educate the community about the history and importance of jazz in North American culture, and is Calgary’s largest recreational dance school.
DJD invites audiences and students to experience how jazz music shapes movement and feeling, to explore the connection between personal expression and collaboration, and to move.
Best known as one of the world’s leading professional jazz dance companies, DJD also runs Calgary’s largest recreational dance school for both adults and children with more 50 classes each week. DJD invites students of all ages to experience how music shapes movement and feeling; to explore the connection between personal expression and collaboration; and to move.
For youth ages 2 to 18 we offer something most other dance studios don’t – a fun, non-competitive environment – which means the focus of our classes is on learning to love dance, not learning specific moves for a recital. Our experienced and exceptional teachers know how to guide and encourage your child in his or her transition from beginner to advanced dancer.
