Cathi Conroy-Jones had a vision to create a centre of excellence for the training of not just children, but students also. After having worked in many prestigious full-time colleges, her insight into their operations gave her the knowledge and experience to set up the Teacher Training course that now exists. North Liverpool Dance Academy has a fabulous reputation, with learners coming from far and wide to gain their qualifications. Cathi is a Triple International Examiner for the ISTD and travels the world examining and coaching on their behalf.
ISTD awarded the Approved Dance Centre status to North Liverpool Dance Academy in 2003. There are only 2 such centres in Liverpool offering all genres and only a handful in the North of England. North Liverpool Dance Academy are the ONLY pure specialist ISTD Teacher Training Establishment in the North-West. We therefore concentrate on every unit with every pupil. All staff at NLDA are highly qualified and all actively undertake PCD.
