Purpose

Dance Studio Jazz D'Nova offers classes for dancers at all levels. Be it with the prospect of starting a professional dance career or just for relaxation and exercise purposes. All dancers receive personal guidance. We think it's very important that everyone learns at their own level.
Particular attention is paid to a maximum number of participants per class.
