SABA JAZZ, CABARET &
MUSICAL THEATRE CLASSES

We currently follow the NZAMD jazz syllabus for students aged 5+ and offer assessments and examinations classes as well as open jazz classes to encourage and inspire our jazz dancers.

The NZAMD American Jazz is an exciting syllabus choreographed by Keith Clifton of the USA and is suitable for students of all ages. The syllabus is designed with comprehensive warm-ups, stretches, floor work, progressions from corners with turns, kicks and jumps and fun combinations. Dance examples are provided for all levels, or teachers may choreograph their own.

Our open classes - junior jazz, senior jazz and cabaret jazz are designed to further extend our dancers repertoire and encourage creativity.

With fun popular music this is a great way to get dancing!

  • My daughter started dancing with Saba as a Dancing Dot. 5 years later and she is loving every single minute of dancing with Saba. She is normally an anxious child but with the confidence ballet has given her, you wouldn’t know it to meet her today. The teachers and other pupils are all so supportive and encouraging. From lessons, to exams and stage shows - the limits are endless.

  • My kids love SABA! Attending ballet is the highlight of their week - both my daughter and son love their teacher and always come out of class buzzing. As a parent, I love that the class sizes are at a level where they can provide guidance to each individual and the level of professional knowledge all the teachers have about developing not only a lifelong passion for dance but also providing a great programme that will set them up if they want to take dancing further in the future.

  • Our two daughters have both been dancing with SABA since they were preschoolers. The SABA teachers have fostered such a strong love of dance in them. The girls have enjoyed the variety of classes on offer and they have always been encouraged to not only progress their skills but also try new things and do their best. This has given them a great confidence in all aspects of their lives. SABA sets high standards but also provides a friendly and welcoming environment.

  • Great new location at 382/386 Manakau Rd. I especially like being able to drop off the kids safely. Designated parking is fantastic to stop in an view the girl's lessons through enormous studio windows. Amazing teachers who really enjoy their roles.
