The Dundrum Hip Hop Dance School was established in 1999 by Arlene Ryan. She began dancing at age 4 and was competing on stage at age 5 up to national level where as part of a troupe, she won all Ireland finals for a number of consecutive years.
Eventually Arlene decided to open up her own dance school so as to share her years of experience with young people and within a very short time her school became a huge hit.
By 2006 the school needed new blood to keep up with demand and so Arlene used her contacts to put some of the best talent Ireland has to offer onto the books.
In 2018 Arlene moved to Wicklow and opened a second school in the town which again has been a huge hit.
We Strive to help kids achieve their best potential. We love to encourage children of all abilities to put themselves out there and to explore what they can actually do in terms of movement and self-expression. It gives us such a thrill to see kids up on stage at the end of the year showing their parents what all of their hard work and commitment can achieve. That is why we do what we do!
All of our Staff are trained in child safe guarding and Garda vetted so you know your kids are in good hands. We look forward to seeing you in class very soon!
