HELLO

ARUBA COGHLAN
Hello I'm Aruba, Dance and Ballet teacher based in Cork!

I started dancing at four years old and I continue to dance and teach dance. In the sixties I organized the first R. A. D. Exams in Cork and formed the Cork Dance Company in 1966.

I was appointed a Dance Examiner for the International Dance Teachers Association (in 1994). I am also a Life Member of the Royal Academy of Dancing and The Imperial Society and a Registered Teacher at the Trinity College London and The Royal Irish Academy.

I frequently examine in England and abroad, do Master Classes, Teacher Training, and Private Lessons in all branches of dance.
