An amazing, supportive and dedicated dance school that my children have the pleasure of attending.
They absolutely love it here and the teachers go above and beyond to meet their individual needs and inspire them to succeed in different dance styles, acting and singing.
My daughter has been at this dance school since she was 3, she is now 13!
She loves it so much, the professionalism, support and dedication from the teachers is second to none.
Can’t recommend highly enough as a dance school!
My daughter wanted to start dance classes at the age of 12. She had never attended any dance classes before and was a bit nervous about starting.
Since she started at DLAD, she has grown in confidence and her love of dancing has continued to grow.
Deborah trained at the Moor Park Dance Centre at Preston College. Here she completed a full time course for professional dancers and teachers of dance.
Deborah was awarded her teaching qualifications by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and the Royal Academy of Dance.
Her professional career began as a dancer for the Syd Lawrence Orchestra and was later contracted to dance on the Renaissance Cruise Liners.
Deborah is the principal and founder of The Deborah Lister Academy of Dance based in St. Helens. The dance academy has 21 years of success and has a reputation of providing expert tuition in all dance and musical theatre genres.
Most recently Deborah has been approved to become an RAD Mentor for dance teachers studying the Royal Academy of Dance CBTS.
I’ve been lucky enough to be a member of the DLAD family for the last 10 years. I remember feeling excited about attending my first beginners ballet and tap class and still feel that buzz of excitement now every time I walk through the doors.
All the teachers are like family and are so helpful. They are always looking after you. I have also made some amazing friendships that I wouldn’t have made if it hadn’t have been for DLAD which are friendships I know will last a lifetime.
