Ella Nonini had this to say about JACAD
"JACAD is a very unique and special school and I couldn’t imagine training with any other dance school. Jayne has been an inspiration to me from the very beginning. JACAD has so much to offer with such high standards of teaching in all disciplines of dance, singing and acting. JACAD allows you grow as an individual and helps you understand that true determination and hard work will help you succeed in your ambitions inside the dance world, as well as any other profession you choose to follow. It’s the perfect place to inspire young minds as there is so much talent to look up to and aspire to be. I started JACAD when I was seven and being a student for nine years has given me a brilliant foundation to start at full time Performing Arts College. Former JACAD graduates that went to Performing Arts Colleges have been such an inspiration. They have given me the motivation to be as successful as they have been in the performing arts industry which is a career they have inspired me to follow."
