Welcome to the Shirley McDouall School of Dance. We have proudly been providing lessons, and nurturing a love of dance in our pupils for over 50 years. Our pupils are trained in the Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D) Syllabus in Ballet, and in Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (I.S.T.D) Syllabus in Modern.
We also teach International Dance Teachers Association (I.D.T.A) Medal and Ballet tests.
Many students have graduated into careers in dance, either as Professional Dancers or Teachers of Dance.
