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.

We offer dance lessons from 2 years of age and we strive to ensure that all dance classes and theatre classes are fun to ensure long term commitment from our students. Our excellent dance teachers find a great balance between making our classes a fun, social and enjoyable place to be while also adhering to the high standards of our exam boards. We are accredited with the Royal Academy of Dance and International Dance Teachers Association and we provide examination with these boards. Along with dance lessons and examinations we also offer a range of opportunities throughout the year for our students to participate in performances both within and outside of the school. Our convenient Dancewear Shop is open to both our students and the general public whenever our school is open. We stock a large range of dance shoes, leotards, dancewear bags and dance accessories. Click here for more information about our dance shop.

Our students come from across North Tyneside and beyond. Because our dance school has great transport links being on the main bus routes with a bus stop close by, and being close to Shiremoor and Northumberland Park Metro Station we have students from North Shields, Whitley Bay, Tynemouth Wallsend, Newcastle, South Shields and Morpeth.

We love to be on stage and performing the routines we have practiced. Because of this we offer many different opportunities for our students to perform throughout the year and sometimes we catch them on film! Please take a look at our videos below to see our students in action!
