Dance Direction International is a well established and respected dance studio based in Durban, South Africa.
Desray van der Spuy, the founder, has been teaching since 1980 and was later joined by Debby Tomlinson to form Dance Direction. In 1996 Debby moved to London and opened a second branch in Surrey, England, and we became Dance Direction International.
We are affiliated to the AIDT (Association of International Dance Teachers), which is a long established and highly respected international dance organization run from Johannesburg. We are also affiliated to the IAAASA (Integrated Artistic Acrobatic Association of South Africa) from Johannesburg and the TDA (Theatre Dance) from Cape Town.
We offer Modern, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, HipHop, Street/Break Dance, Freestyle, Acrobatics, Gumboot, Theatre Dance, Body Conditioning, Aerobics, Taebo, Step and Stretch, Zumba & Posture classes, allowing for complete diversity of styles and producing dancers who are happy to rise to the challenge of new styles.
Striving to balance technique and performance we offer both exam classes and open classes in the disciplines of Modern, Tap, Hiphop, Acrobatics and theatre dance. As well as simply offering classes to the pupils, we encourage our pupils to further their dance education, and so therefore offer training programmes through which the dancers are able to become qualified teachers, allowing Dance Direction to grow from strength to strength.
At Dance Direction International we cater for ALL ages.
