Welcome to CSDD

Welcome to the CSDD, a long established dance school – a family concern spanning over 50 years. 

The school was started in 1963 by Pat Shannon, a former Tiller girl at the London Palladium and Blackpool Circusette.


The school was formally taken over by Claire Cain, Pat's daughter. Claire, a professional dancer in her own right, with a strong performance and teaching background, now continues the family business. 

Based in 4 locations, Anerley, Dulwich, Sydenham and West Wickham, we offer a variety of dance and musical theatre classes to children and adults of all ages and abilities.


Classes include Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Street Jazz, Contemporary, Acrobatic, Acrodance and Musical Theatre.
