The Drusilla Duffill Theatre School presented 'Footnotes' to celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the school, with a cast of 150 excited, talented young dancers aged 3-19yrs. We offer a truly professional experience and a fantastic opportunity to work in a professional theatre and lighting with many happy treasured memories for a lifetime. Our productions are once every three years to offer this high level of experience

The Drusilla Duffill Theatre School offers a fantastic dance education to all pupils providing a disciplined approach to physical exercise,

a chance for young people to express themselves creatively and an avenue for children to explore and contemplate a future in dance.  The School has developed a strong reputation in the dance world and has become a renowned place of learning for dance students in Mid Sussex currently teaching ballet, tap, modern, jazz and performance classes to over 150 students of all ages.


In addition it has been a focal point for long and enduring friendships. Our aim is to provide a well structured curriculum within a caring atmosphere where young children and students can develop their love of dance and theatre, whether for enjoyment or as the basis for a professional career. Encourage self-confidence, self-expression, and social skills that help develop and inspire your child's musicality and imagination.
