Lovely things that people have said:
'"The Jam Place is a superb organisation that is a huge asset to the community.
During lockdown, despite face to face classes having to be cancelled, The Jam Place carried on running via zoom every week. On screen and behind the scenes - the dedicated team ensured that the emotional wellbeing of their members was sound.
Whilst the organisers are highly skilled performers, and happily share all that they know with their 'Jamily', their positive values, inclusiveness, love, kindness and nurturing ethos go hand in hand with the skills taught.
My daughter has been with Jam for over 3 years. It is the highlight of her week. She came home on Friday this week from her face to face Jam class and said 'I feel really good about myself'.
Everybody that attends Jam is made to feel important and special. Whether you are an extrovert or an introvert, whatever your background - The Jam Place is for everyone in the community.
The Jam Place is every bit as wonderful as it sounds and would be a very worthy winner of an Epsom Business Award'
“Nothing is stopping her coming back to Jam, she said even if she has to wear a full on body mask and sit in a bath of antibac”
I know we only managed to come a few times (before Covid lockdown) but I was blown away by the passion and care that you pour into the sessions.
The Jam Place are an inclusive music, theatre and dance group for boys and girls in the community.
The Jam Teachers have the ability to motivate children to perform, in a non judgemental, fun environment which works wonders for self esteem.
The teachers show their knowledge of performance skills, use a variety of musical themes and are dedicated to seeing every child shine.
If you have teenagers you love, get them here. If you have teenagers you don’t love, send them here, they will come back nicer!
She really wants to carry on with Jam, as she gets so much out of it.
My daughter has been going to Jam since she was a toddler. she started off at Baby Boogie, then did ballet & tap and since she started school she goes to the performing arts for 2 hours on a Saturday morning. My daughter is now 10 years old. She also enjoys the pod nightclub for kids and jam parties as well as performing in the pantomime every Christmas. I have attended adult dance classes. The Jam Place is a fun, safe, friendly environment with so much laughter. Helen and Cass work relentlessly to ensure the kids have a good time, yet it is not work for them. They are Mums themselves that love spending time with the children. Jam is "Jamily". Helen and Cass are the most amazing, selfless people I know. It is their priority to look after others and make sure the kids (and the adults). These people deserve an award, they need to be recognized for the great things they have done. Life would not be the same without Jam in it!! I am chuffed to pieces that The Jam Place is now a CIC and they are doing even more to help others, including children that have special needs. I wish these two remarkable women, and their business associates, all the very best.
Just wanted to say thanks again to you and Cass for making the party such a smooth and enjoyable success. Several of the girls have reportedly said it was the best party they've ever been to...
She really loved it too and she genuinely did have the best party ever.
Have mentioned to many of the Mum's how stress free it all was and recommended you.
BEST PARTY EVER!!! Thank you!!! The children LOVED it!!!
Thank you both for making her Saturday mornings so much fun, she has never once complained about having to get out of her pyjamas and get a move on on a Saturday morning! I think that says a lot!
Aaliyah has just fallen in love with her ballet classes on Saturday. Thanks for being such a great teacher!
Well done! I loved the show. The kids all looked at ease and knew their moves really well.
You've really brought confidence out in Ella and for that we're forever grateful
We all really loved seeing the girls' performance and look forward to seeing you in September.
Frankie really loves her ballet classes and dancing around the house in her ballet clothes!
We think it is a fantastic class - her confidence has come on enormously since joining I think only at Easter.
Isabel has really enjoyed attending the Saturday sessions and its been great to see her confidence improve over the weeks
Congratulations once again to you and for such a professional pantomine it was absolutely excellent.
Helen, thank you for making our first dance as husband and wife FANTASTIC!!
thank you for making saturday mornings so awesome!
You're so lovely with all the kids and that's why they all love doing what they do there.
Just to let you know that Eleni is absolutely loving Baby Ballet
Eleni has enjoyed every minute with you both from Baby Ballet through to Musical Theatre and it has helped her to become a confident young lady.
I just wanted to say a huge thanks for this mornings session where I brought Chloe along to see what it was all about. I was totally amazed that she wanted to Join in and said she enjoyed it. You made me and her feel welcome and at ease and what great music!!
We just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed the show that Jam did today. It was so lovely to see all the children's confidence and enjoyment throughout.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to both you and Cass for today. Isla really enjoyed the whole experience and it looked fantastic - they all looked as though they were having so much fun. Isla really looks forward to Saturday mornings and you both do a great job at encouraging them all.
I just wanted to send a message to you and you team and say a massive thank you. You were brilliant. All the children looked like they had a great time, especially Emily, you really made her birthday special.
A massive thanks for today. Harriet (and the others) had a wonderful time. It really was a fantastic party. Loved all the Frozen games and the Let it go routine will no doubt be performed for many months!
Wow! Ruby and Jasmine are buzzing! They have obviously had a fabulous time this morning and they’re so excited about being in the panto.
Thank you both so much for the fun and the care that you have given Juliet and the confidence you have inspired in her to perform in the annual panto in particular. Cinderella was, of course, a particular highlight but we have enjoyed them all!
