Debbie Paul had this to say about JACAD
"I danced at JACAD aged 4-16 and from the intense discipline, knowledge and technique I gained from my 12 years training I was offered a scholarship for full time training. Because of the incredibly high standards Jayne has, I only needed one year at full time and now four years after graduating I have been working pretty much constantly ever since. All the hard work and dedication that is required to make it in the industry was taught to me by Jayne. She is an inspiration to me in so many ways and the school is an extension of my family where I am always welcome back to teach the younger girls and join in with classes. Anyone who has a passion for dancing I would highly recommend they take classes at JACAD. There are classes for people who want to make it their career and also great basic classes for girls and boys who just want to have fun."
