Good morning everyone hope you’re having


Owner and Dance Teacher

Hello, I am Jayne Fullerton otherwise known as Miss Jayne whilst in the studio. I run and own JF Dance Works. 

I am Carlisle born and bread and have danced since I was 4 years old in the Atlas Works building, where our classes are based! 

I trained in ballet, modern jazz and tap until the age of 18 where I then went to uni and completed a BA Honours Degree in dance. 

In 2018 I achieved my BTDA Dance Teaching Certificate in Modern Jazz and in 2019 I became a fully qualified primary teacher with holding PGCE. I currently work full time in a local primary school whilst working hard in my dance school two evenings a week. 

I have a huge amount of experience teaching dance and this is my 10th year teaching the BTDA modern jazz and tap syllabus. Recently, in 2021, I also qualified to teach BTDA contemporary syllabus which I have been filtering into all of my classes. 


I have also taught all over the county of Cumbria delivering dance in many schools offering; curriculum based dance, dance clubs, dances working towards festivals and staff training. 


Embrace Your Love of Dance



Our youngest classes begin for children who have started school aged 4+. These fantastic classes are an exciting introduction to modern and tap where they learn basic technique through fun and creative lessons. Miss Jayne is committed to showing every child attention and helping them understand the basic steps they will need and develop throughout their dance education. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about these classes and how to begin your child’s enjoyment for dance! 


Our graded classes show progression through the different levels continuing to follow British Theatre Dance Association (BTDA). Within these classes, children have the opportunity to learn and develop their modern and tap skills, continue to strengthen their technique whilst learning fun dances with input from children. There are many opportunities for the children to showcase their talent as we hold graded examinations, medal award sessions and a yearly show. If you are interested for your child to join a small friendly dance school then contact Miss Jayne and she will answer any questions you have. 



Our Free Jazz class is a favourite among many of our older students. This class is for pupils who have completed all Graded examinations and are now on vocational exams however we are more than happy to accept new comers who can dance and work at this level. Within these classes we concentrate on increasing technique, flexibility and work hard on extending our performance skills. At the moment, we don't do tap at this level, but if this something you are interested in then please get in touch! Our Free Jazz classes are open to students who are Year 10 and above and are looking to dance for fun, fitness or as a hobby.
