Jules’ Jazz Jam

Discover Ardour: Wellness, Dance, and Creativity in Cardiff


“Amina is so lovely! You need lots of concentration for the class and you don’t need to get your “belly out” which has been the 1st question all my friends have asked me. It will help to keep my brain super active as time goes by. I really am loving the simplistic yet complex form of dance.” – [anonymous] on belly dancing

Once a month, Ardour Academy hosts “Jules’ Jazz Jam,” an event that celebrates the vibrant energy of jazz music in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Led by Jules, a local jazz musician, this jam session brings together musicians and enthusiasts from diverse backgrounds to share their love for jazz.
During “Jules’ Jazz Jam,” participants have the opportunity to showcase their musical talents, whether they’re experienced performers or enthusiastic amateurs.

We welcome singers, those that want to try their instruments and those that want to sit back and soak in the atmosphere. Our jazz jams are community events at their best! It is a friendly, non-judgmental and positive environments that welcome anyone interested or curious about Jazz.
