About us


Hello, my name is Jane Cooke Principal of Sutton Stage School and Boldmere Ballet School.


I am a fully registered teacher of the Royal Academy of Dance which is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world.

I am also registered with the IDTA and ABD [formerly MIDAA]. I have been teaching classical ballet and all subjects of stage dance for over 30 years and have also danced on the professional stage.

A number of girls who have trained with me have gone on to work professionally both on stage and in teaching careers.

My schools offer all children and young adults an opportunity to explore the exciting world of dance giving them freedom to express themselves through music and movement. It helps to improves fitness, flexibility, co-ordination and posture. Students have the opportunity to perform in our shows and productions and progress through a continuous flow of examinations. Our facilities include a fully equipped dance studio and theatre on site. We pride ourselves in being a friendly and happy school whilst maintaining a high standard of work with excellent examination results in all subjects.
