About Us

Our Mission Statement

The mission statement of AJ's is to inspire our next generation of dancers, you can never fail when you strive to be the best you can be but, only learn when we are provided with the foundation required to succeed.

Amy Mathews founded AJ's School of Dance back in 2004. She started running classes in village halls and schools before becoming the proud owner of AJ's very own dance school based in Cartergate, Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The school continues to grow each year with more students, classes, talented and inspiring teachers all made possible by the fantastic support we receive from our AJ's community of parents and carers.
