FULL TIME SCHOOL
The school was established in 1981 in Drury Lane and in 1983 moved to a former 1880’s church school building in Marylebone. In July 2010, we moved to our new premises in Nutford Place, just off Seymour Place in W1. Our site houses two vocational floors with studios, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, two academic floors and a large canteen with two courtyard gardens.
Our aim is to enable all dancers to reach their potential in Irish dancing both in team dancing and solos, and to love every minute of it! We want dancers to enjoy coming to classes, going to competitions and giving performances.
Carefully selected creative activities aim to develop performance technique and self-confidence. Our enthusiastic staff of qualified, experienced drama teachers, include professional directors, writers and performers.
Dance is a gift: it builds confidence through a pure art form, and thus opens the heart. It’s in that spirit that our dancers are given the opportunity to be in the spotlight and allow the choreography to take shape.
Diddi dance classes are designed to help your toddler enhance their co-ordination and rhythm. We are here to nurture their natural love of movement in a structured yet relaxed 45 minute class. Classes are suitable for both boys and girls aged from 18 months upwards, however we have had lots of younger children join in.
