Here at Pauline Cook School of Dancing, we firmly believe that if you can master the art of ballet, you can do any dance style. Our dance school stands out from the rest, as we are the only dance school in West Durham to offer lessons with Pauline Cook, who is a fully qualified Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) instructor. Pauline has worked in the West End of London and is classically trained, so you know that your child will be getting the best quality ballet lessons.
Royal Academy of Dance exams offered
We are the only school in West Durham to offer both Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) examinations. So if your child is aiming high with their ballet, then our dance school is the perfect place to train. We also offer classes for complete beginners and young children, so we can ensure that there is a class for you or your child to attend.
Pauline Cook School of Dancing has produced many professional dancers over the years, including several students going on to attend the Lindhurst Ballet School, York Scholars Ballet School, Bodywork Dance Studio in Cambridge, SLP College in Leeds and The Royal Ballet School.
