How could I get into a jazz dance class?

I'm 14 and wish to start taking jazz classes for recreation. Physically, I'm flexible, muscular, and have a fair bit of stamina. I have taken 3 years of ballet, and attended some jazz summer workshops when I was younger. There aren't any catch up or teen beginner classes offered in my area. Are there any ways I could get into a jazz class? I don't think I'd be accepted in a level 1 class with 6-8 year olds and the levels my peers are at might be too advanced. Maybe I'd be accepted in a level 4/5 class? I really want to do jazz and I'd be willing to practice at home. Does anybody know of any options I have?
Thank you

I think it'd be a good idea to speak with the local dance studio about your concerns. Chances are you'll be able to take a trial class and the instructor can let you know where the best fit will be.

Otherwise, it's hard to tell from this side of the 'net without being familiar with your dancing or the studio in question. "Level 4/5" can mean a variety of different things.

Call some studios! I'm sure they could fit you in a class:)
