About the school
Daisy School of Dance
The Daisy School of Dance was founded by Rebecca Flynn in Sept 2009. The school started off in the school hall of Scoil Bhríde, Kilbride, Co Meath. From here the school has expanded to the Dance Addiction Studios in Blanchardstown and to Scoil Bhríde Clane, Co Kildare.

Students take annual exams with the IDTA and with a 100% pass rate for all IDTA Exam Sessions taken to date the school is really encouraging the natural talent of local children.
Our school performances “Dancing Dreams” in 2011 and 2016 have proven the success of the school. Performance opportunities are vital for all children learning to dance. We at the Daisy School of Dance take every opportunity big or small to allow our students to perform. Our school shows star everyone in the school from tiny tots to senior students and guest artists. Our school have also danced with the Monica Loughman Ballet in The National Concert Hall and the Convention Centre Dublin.
The National Dance Championships of the last three years have brought great success to our school. This competition offers all involved a great opportunity to prepare classwork and solo variations to present to an audience and adjudicators. Meeting dancers from all over the country also leads to new friends and new supports amongst the dancers.
Workshops / Camps
The Daisy School of Dance recognise the importance of working with various teachers and trying various dance styles. For this reason, we run camps and workshops with many guest teachers and artists for the students to meet, talk to and be thought by.
