Jane Robson School of Dance

about us


Dance School for Consett, Derwentside and The Wear Valley - with classes by the term and 'pay as you go'


Not about 'strictly dancing'  (...there's exercise & theatre too!)

Jane Robson Dance School is the long-established dance, theatre AND dance fitness centre for Consett,  Derwentside and The Wear Valley. 

Movers and shakers..

The Dance School moved in 2007 across Derwent Street into large, refurbished premises with 2 airy studios and comprehensive Dance and costume shop. 

Any business interested in hiring the rooms to run their children's activity parties or classes? Call Jane Robson's Dance School in Blackhill, Consett .

Showcasing and pantomiming..

The dance school has a lively calendar of events (publicised in Events tab, see top of article) including its own shows and Christmas pantomime.  Classes of children and adults regularly perform dance, song and theatre pieces at The Lamplight Theatre Stanley, Empire Theatre Consett,  and Consett Civic Hall.

Modern or classic ...

Ballet dance classes remain a classic - boys and girls receive professional grounding, with a full IDTA Syllabus and examination program.

Tap and Salsa are great fun and efficient exercise for all ages

Or try freestyle/Rock n’ Roll for a more 1960’s jive rhythm.

Make an entrance…

Add some Drama with musical theatre classes, good for confidence building as well as having fun!

Exercise your mind ...

Pilates, used by dancers to improve their posture and tone the body is popular as a stress reliever.

.. and other bits .. Belly dancing and 'Bums and Tums' coming soon if enough takers are 'up for it'!

Jane Robson dance school, theatre and exercise classes offer something for everyone from 2 years.  Join as a member for some classes and pay as you go option for others.

latest reviews

In February 2008, said about Jane Robson School of Dance

Fun and relaxed, with good quality teaching, stretching the childrenʼs ability and co-ordination. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds here. New studios are very professional, clean and airy, and the kids love it!
