Well if you are anything like me, I sat and thought…and thought and pondered and wondered and doubted about putting mine together FOR AGES… I just didn’t know where to start or how to start…

Dance Classes in Castle Hill – The POINTE of difference

For years now, it has been proven that when a child enjoys what they are doing and have a positive experience with an activity, their learning is enhanced and they are able to learn at a quicker rate while reaping not only physical benefits, but also a positive mentality through gaining confidence and a positive self worth. As a parent though, it can be difficult to know what activities to put your child into, with so many new options to choose from nowadays and many other deciding factors such as location, schedule and prices. But what if we removed this before school year stress and simply went with an activity that your child wants to do and one  they would really enjoy and have a positive experience, being in. When we start to consider what’s really important to us in a class and how it will positively benefit our child, it becomes clearer.

Dancing classes have always been a popular activity among children, but with new research coming in showing the endless benefits of taking this type of class, it becomes an obvious choice for parents to go with. Aside from improving a child’s fitness and health status, dance bares many other benefits which in turn, contributes to a healthier nation. Not only does it boost a child’s memory but it also improves their retention of information; training the brain and giving it essential skills for later in life. Likewise, increased flexibility drastically improves the range of motion in their joints, which although may not be as necessary at this stage in their lives, proves to be asset as they will eventually form the adult proportion of this country. Increased coordination, balance and strength is an added bonus, which consequently improves a child’s health and wellbeing as a whole.

Many other activities share these health benefits though, so where dance separates itself from the others, is the way in which it enhances the child’s learning through the numerous psychological benefits. Being in a vibrant and fun learning environment that engages with and includes every child, allows a sense of belonging and as such greatly improves their confidence and brings about a positive self-esteem and worth. Not only this, they learn to interact with others and be a part of an inclusiveness community that in term forms life long friendships. These type of benefits, greatly improve a child’s readiness to firstly start school and then later on, improves their ability to deal with different situations, try new things and be an admirable and hard working employee. With such a technological based world right now and the ability for children to grow up too quickly, dance preserves their imagination and forms creative and thoughtful members of the community. When a child is happy in an activity they love, they are generally happier people as a whole.

This is exactly the tact that Miss Jen and the team at Jigsaw Dance Studio like to implement in every aspect of the studio, as we focus on providing a fun, nurturing and non competitive environment for children to learn in. As we introduce our new and improved Jigsaw Junior preschool program to the families of Jigsaw Dance in 2017, we will see further growth as children gain confidence, imagination, happiness and friendships within the classroom and learn a variety of dance styles in our Next Gen Combo Class. “Each week our classes are a journey of imagination, creation and education. Along the way, our dancers develop new skills, confidence and friendships through the passionate guidance of our teachers. We encourage creative thinking and exploration while our dancers get to feel a sense of pride, excitement and fun and most importantly feel like the most important dancer in the room.”

Your little one can learn to dance in our New Next Gen combo classes, which gives pre-schoolers a taster of Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Mini Acro, Tap & Baby Yoga, allowing the dancers to gain confidence in a variety of genres and to learn which styles they love the most and may want to pursue in the future. As well as this they can also learn to be a Ballerina in our Ballet classes, which take the dancers on a magical journey of fun and imagination. Classes start from as soon as they can walk in a variety of locations in the Castle Hill & Kellyville district. Come along to a class and experience the Jigsaw difference for yourself. We’d love to help you find the perfect class for your child and to get you started on your journey, so contact Miss Jen on 0412 687 890 or to find out more information.

Back into it at Jigsaw Dance Castle Hill

Well we are back into the SWING of things for Term 1. Welcome back everyone and a special welcome to the many new families that are with us this year. It has been lovely meeting you and your little ones and we hope that you quickly settle in to the groove of things with us.

At the start of any term it is always tricky balancing class numbers across the timetable. To start with some classes will be quite large and with other classes some are a bit smaller. Over the course of the next few weeks, this always sorts itself out. There will (as always) be a few class timetable amendments, but when this happens I will keep you all in the loop.

Remember the best ways that we communicate with you all are:
SOCIAL MEDIA: (especially Facebook) so like the page ‘Jigsaw Dance Studio Kellyville & Castle Hill’ to receive the updates. Always remember to like or comment of a post every few weeks to make sure Facebook keeps you on the news feed from the studio.

EMAIL: For important updates we email everyone at the studio. These emails are usually backed up with a short Facebook post to remind you to check your emails. If you notice for whatever reason you did not received the email, check your junk or trash folders and if still not there please email me at and I will double check my lists.

TEAM APP: Make sure you download the TEAMAPP application to your smartphones. This app allows us to quickly pass on news to our dancing families. Once downloaded search our studio name and you will find us there.


Welcome everyone once again as we embark on a busy but exciting term 1. If at any time I can help you with any questions or you have any ideas on how we can make your experience with us better I am always contactable on

Have a lovely week.

Positive self image through performing arts classes at Castle Hill

Give your child confidence. For years now research is showing that a positive self image and a good self esteem in children is sourced from the positive activities they undertake in their childhood. With so many options available today it can be hard for any parent to decide where best to spend their child and their own time.

So many considerations come in to play when making such a decision. Where it the activity located, when does the activity take place, Is the activity going to take all day or my entire week end and how much will it cost. All perfectly valid questions, but one more should be considered….what will this activity bring to my child’s life?

As what happens on most occasions, the parents choose what their child will do and inevitably due to that decision a child sticks at a certain, sport or activity for many years into the future. Call it familiarity, call it ease or call it habit these activities or sports can form the basis to your child’s health, fitness, friend group and self esteem for many years to come.

What if you let your child decide what they wanted to do. What if they had all the options in front of them and they chose what they enjoyed? This is the tact Miss Jen and the Jigsaw Dance team like to support. Jigsaw Dance Studio has been operating in the Hills District of Sydney for the past 23 years. With several studio locations across the hills district the Jigsaw Dance team have a wealth of knowledge, teachers and experience to allow your little one to explore the world of performing arts.

This year in 2016 Jigsaw Dance comes to the North Shore with a new venue opening at the St Johns Uniting Church located at 61 Coonanbarra Road Wahroonga. With free trial weeks available for all new students, you can come along and try out the Jigsaw Dance philosophy yourself with no costs, no pressure to sign up and really allow your little one to feel the studio out for themselves. Your little one can jump, run and shake their booty to music whilst making friends in a fun and competition free environment. Help Jigsaw bring out the best in your little one at their own pace. Contact Jigsaw Dance for free trial voucher on or call Miss Tash on 0468994488. For all the timetable information go our website at
