JazzartUK Charitable Status

Although Jazzart is currently celebrating its 80th year of performing arts in 2024, it probably surprises most people that JazzartUK is a charity. This was an easy decision for Sheridan the Director in 2011 as the school became a college! 

In 2011, JazzartUK became an SQA provider of Further Education, and in 2014 a centre of excellence for Dance and Musical Theatre with HNC and HND courses in Musical Theatre and Professional Dance. Our graduates have attended in their hundreds, and we are proud and excited to see them continue to perform. 

JazzartUK’s decision to become a charity is to protect against the rising tuition fees associated with private colleges and universities providing performing arts training. JazzartUK ensures that tuition fees are good value, and the training is a West End standard in the heart of Lanarkshire. 

It is important to give back, and the JazzartUK Outreach programme provides students with performing opportunities. Our students have performed as far afield as New York in celebration of Tartan Week, and local theme parks, open days and town centre promotional events. While our HNC and HND Students are included in touring productions for local schools, and many have professional contract opportunities while studying.
