Chesterfield Studios and DB Dance - together as one!

Diane Bradbury Theatre Dance School has been established for over forty years. In that time Diane and her teachers have maintained a very high standard of teaching, following the International Dance Teachers' Association (IDTA) syllabus.


Pupils participate in an annual dance show at the Pomegranate Theatre in May and work towards IDTA examinations for the second part of the year.


Pupils often audition for and participate in professional pantomimes and productions within the surrounding area.


​Disciplines taught: Theatre Craft, Tap, Ballet, Contemporary Modern Jazz and Acrobatic Dance.

Please enquire for class details, uniform, timetable and prices.

Improvers Dance is created for students who are not currently taking dance classes. The aim of the class is to help students begin to build a solid technique and demystify dance steps and terminology so students can become more confident dancers.

More advanced students are likely to already be receiving dance training, either within the Studios or elsewhere. This class is aimed at students who would like to build their skills at a more elementary level.

Students will be given the opportunity to explore movement and master basic steps before going on to explore them in a meaningful and artistic way.

Classes will focus on Jazz and Ballet, which form the foundations of the musical theatre dance style. These sessions will help you to build strength and flexibility in a supportive, non-judgmental environment that is solely focused on improving you as an individual.

If you have tried to follow choreography whilst hiding on the back row - this class is for you.

If you try your best to keep up with dances, but lose your flow - this class is for you.

If you think you cannot dance - this class is for you.

As a group, you will grow and support each other, laugh when things go wrong, and build

your own skills along the way.

No previous dance experience is required at all and is suited to all genders.
