International dance teacher Patricia Paul made Christchurch her home 20 years ago and has established four successful dance schools.
Patricia, as a child, trained with the Royal Academy of Dancing in Bristol and then went on to London where she spent 2 years with the prestigious Ballet Rambert.
As a teacher Patricia has taught and choreographed ballet, contemporary dance and jazz for the American festival ballet, the Athens Ballet Theatre, The Paula Caputo Ballet School, The ballet school in Bath, England and Studio C in Los Angeles, where many of her students went on to dance for several celebrities, such as Tiffany, Paula Abdul, and Debbie Allen!
Locally the Patricia Paul School of Dance has been providing excellence in dance education in Christchurch for 20 years.
We have eight locations in the Christchurch area: Harewood, Thorrington, Fendalton, Cashmere, Rolleston, Upper Riccarton, Sumner and North New Brighton.
The schools goal is to be more than just a dance school. We are passionate about educating students mentally as well as physically, to build self esteem and confidence through dance!
