Professional training in a family environment.

Established in 1979 the Debra Simmons School of Dance has trained children through to adults in all aspects of performance.

Teaching the IDTA syllabus we offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Theatre Craft, Musical Theatre and Street Dance. We encourage students to study a mixture of these genres and strongly believe by doing so this creates a well rounded and versatile performer.

Classes are interactive and fun, the perfect second home for your child's love of performance to develop.

Our faculty is made up of both a fellow of IDTA and fully qualified IDTA examiner along with experienced guest teachers from the industry, some of whom are past students who have gone on to the professional stage.

You can be confident that with such a wealth of knowledge under one roof your child will develop the skills and technique required of a professional performer in a fabulously fun, engaging environment.

You and especially your mother have helped to build my daughter into the woman she is today, giving her the friends, memories and confidence to carry her throughout life, we are so happy we sent our little girl to you, your school, you have been a major player in the happiness and helping so many young people, turning them into the successful individuals they are today, thank you, thank your Mum, thank you both from the bottom of my heart, a very proud Dad.
