Royal Academy of Dance Jade Harrison Newcastle Dance Studios

Welcome to Jade Harrison School of Dance 

Jade Harrison School of Dance opened in March 2006 and is situated in the heart of New York Village in North Shields. We teach a range of dance styles from Ballet to Acrobatic Arts in our purpose built dance school in North Tyneside.

Our school has incredible facilities including two large dance studios, a relaxing café area with Wi-Fi, a private changing room, a large car park to the rear of the building, and an onsite dancewear shop. Dance Studio 1 is extremely spacious with mirrored walls perfect for all types of dance lessons but is primarily used for ballet classes. Dance Studio 2 also has mirrored walls and is decorated with New York themed Graffiti so is a perfect setting for teaching Acrobatic Art, Broadway, Lyrical Contemporary and Stretch/Flex. Our Dance School also has its own onsite theatre which seats up to eighty with its own professional studio lighting, sound system and curtains, perfect for our regular performances and theatre work.

Ballet Classes

Our ballet classes form the heart of our dance school and teaching Royal Academy Ballet has been Jade’s passion for many years. We teach ballet from 2 years all the way up to professional standards using the RAD syllabus. Ballet helps develop stamina, posture, fluidity and grace and can be started with no prior experience.

Royal Academy of Dance

RAD Ballet is on the National Framework and qualifications are the equivalent to GCSE, A Level, and so UCAS points. We are very proud that we have students from as young as 7 years pass exams equivalent to GCSE grade d-f.

We are passionate about teaching the Royal Academy of Dance Ballet syllabus and Jade is a registered teacher with the RAD – you can see her registration here

More than Ballet

Ballet is the base for so many other forms of dance which is why it is so popular as an art form on its own and as a starting point for so many other disciplines. Ballet also has so many other benefits, it teaches grace, poise and posture along with helping students develop interpersonal skills with their peers in class. By learning new steps and routines along with working towards exams and performances gives students not only a sense of satisfaction but also self-belief and the self confidence that comes along with that.
