JAKSA is a multi-disciplinary performing arts studio that empowers students.

Our tailored programs, nurturing environment and student support encourage JAKSA performers to successfully audition, securing lead and ensemble rolls performing with many local community Musical Theatre groups such as The Regals Musical Society, Engadine Musical Society, Bankstown Musical Society, Sutherland Musical Society, The Canterbury Theatre Guild, Rockdale Musical Society and Ruby Productions.

We also congratulate one of our Junior students, Oliver, who secured the role of Young Charlie in 2017 in The Capitol Theatre’s production of “Kinky Boots”!

JAKSA dance classes are recreational-based, and follow the Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dance (CSTD) syllabus to facilitate technique. Our primary focus is to extend and polish each individual’s performance.



JAKSA singers, dancers and drama students have many opportunities to celebrate their talent:

> School fetes and celebrations

> Musical Theatre Shows

> Pantomimes

> Bankstown Youth Week Celebrations

> McHappy Day

> Auditions

For fourteen years, JAKSA has promoted hundreds of children and adults from Bankstown, Milperra, East Hills, Panania, Picnic Point, Revesby, Padstow, Condell Park, Georges Hall, Chipping Norton, Moorebank, Liverpool and the surrounding suburbs.

We look forward to educating and cultivating confidence in you and/or your child!


 In 2017, JAKSA introduced our own “SPOTLIGHT” program, which promotes positive behavior and hard work ethic. Our Spotlight nominations are chosen over Terms 1, 2 & 3, and are chosen based on: Kindness; Teamwork; Improvement in their abilities to sing/dance/act; Improvement in their confidence; Manners & Respect; Commitment – Attends all lessons & is punctual; Displays a positive attitude; Class Participation; Enthusiasm & determination & Pride in Uniform. The students are then filmed, answering the Spotlight questions and their photos are put up on our noticeboard at the studio for everyone to see.


This is our code of conduct to help instill JAKSA’S values.

J – Joyful (smiling faces, enjoying class, including everyone)

A – Appreciative (manners, respect)

K – Kindhearted (helping others, using kind words)

S – Supportive (looking after our friends, inclusivity, helping)

A – Approachable (saying hello to a new student, asking if someone needs help, smiling at everyone when they walk into the studio even if they’re nervous)


Starting 2018, we are introducing JAKSA M&Ms, which is a class peer support program.  Students are chosen by teachers to help in class with guiding and assisting other students in their activities, helping to read scripts, handing out stickers at the end of class, writing names on the “Take Five” boards, walking little students to the toilet or helping them walk down the stairs and general acts of kindness.  These students must already display leadership skills and most importantly be down to earth, kind, humble and very approachable.  They will be given badges to wear and those that are chosen will be an M&M throughout the entire year.


Take fives are little random acts of kindness that reflect our Bee Code.  Our JAKSA teachers instigate and recognise “take fives” in their classes by rewarding positive behaviour. For example:  if a student helps another student without having to be asked, you could respond with.  “Wow, Lucy.  I am very impressed!  You just displayed a take five by helping Mary.  What a kind heart you have!  Let’s put your name on the “K” chart because you are “Kindhearted”.  This program aims to establish positive self-esteem, instill values and leadership skills and ignite a passion for working with others.
