        Patti Rutland Jazz has built an excellent reputation in the competitive dance world. Students have been awarded both regional and national scholarships to competitions, conventions and workshops. The team has a strong

commitment to their performances.

They will gain exposure to some of the nation's top teachers and choreographers, receive judges feedback, gain resilience and truly learn what it is to be a team.
