Happy memories from our school show July 2019.
Review from a member of the public from our production last year "United we Dance"
" Wow- the best dance school show I have ever seen , the costumes, staging, choreography and dancers worthy of a West End production. Very impressive- making the most of the abilities of every child absolutely fabulous. I hope the children and parents know how lucky they are"
Below were our Graduates and Prize winners from 2019
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.
