Anthony Clifford Studios has been training ISTD dance teachers in Ballet, Tap, Modern Theatre, Ballroom, Latin-American, Salsa, Disco Freestyle and Street since its beginnings back in 1994. We trained Associates and then were one of the first Approved Dance Centres in the country we now offer ISTD DDE qualifications in Ballet, Tap and Modern and the Associate qualifications in the Dance sport Faculties.
We advise and support our students in all aspects of the qualifications and continue to mentor our students far beyond this with advice on the challenges and commercial aspects of setting up and running a new dance school, as well as being a free-lance teacher. Once you have been part of the ACS Teacher Training family you are always just a phone call away!
Based in Romford, Essex we are well placed for an easy commute being both close to London and the M25 by road and train and will be directly served by the new crossrail opening soon.
Our courses are adaptable with some weekly morning and evening lessons to fit around your current teaching schedule, Licentiate, Fellowship qualifications and also Intermediate, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 exam coaching is available both weekly or intensively, and especially for ex-professional dancers and mature students making the transition to teaching or pursuing their teaching qualifications further.
Just call for further information, we are sure we can work round you!
We are very proud of the high caliber of our teaching faculty, boasting a team of senior staff and visiting guest teachers, many of whom are also ISTD examiners and Committee members. (see staff and Principal)
