Dwan Academy Performing Arts School


In our new Dwan Academy Performing Arts Studios on Parnell Street we provide Musical Theatre, Ballet and Hip Hop classes as well as private tuition in Singing and Speech & Drama.

An innovative, independent performing arts school, we offer equal opportunities to the complete beginner right through to the avid performer. Whether performing is a pastime or a passion we encourage students to develop at their own pace, and we offer performance opportunities for students every year.

Taking great pride in the social development of our students, Dwan Academy brings people together in a vibrant and exciting community to explore the magical world of theatre and performing arts. No matter how large or small the goal, we will encourage students to surpass even their own expectations. We take children on a journey from learning techniques, through rehearsals, to a final end of year performance and while performing is our main focus, we aim to build confidence as well as develop skills in the art of theatre.

Run by local business woman Therese Maher, Dwan Academy is celebrating 10 years this year and will be marking the occasion with a series of workshops and events.

Enquiries for classes can be made through the website www.dwanacademy.com, emailing hello@dwanacademy.com, or calling Therese on 085 1654 854.
