Our Show

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 pupils, classes, talented and inspiring teachers all made possible by the fantastic support we receive from our AJ's community of parents and carers.

AJ's Shows

The opportunity to perform in a show /event is an exciting, empowering and

confidence-building part of the training process.

This is where we love to watch our students learn about the theatre, rehearsals and teamwork while they enjoy the opportunity to showcase their skills in a professionally run production.

Shows/ events are a wonderful way for students to showcase the results of their hard work and for family and friends to join in the pride of their achievement.

We love giving all students the chance to perform for their family and friends in this supportive and fun environment and encourage even our youngest and newest performers to be involved.

If there is any reason why your child will not be able to perform at the shows/events on the dates and times provided nearer the time, please let us know so we can make amendments to the class routines involving them
