** To all our dear pupils, parents and fantastic supporters**
Coronavirus and Conor Academy
Due to the rapidly changing situation of COVID-19 and the control measures being put in place daily, it is with great regret that we must take the disappointing decision to postpone all Irish Dancing classes until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and hope that our decision will be seen as responsible and in the best interests of all of us. You should know that #ConorAcademy really appreciates your fantastic support and we look forward to welcoming you back to the classes at a future date.
Please keep watching our Social Media updates on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, an on our website.

Conor Academy of Irish Dancing is well established in the South London and Surrey areas of the UK and independently run by former World Champion Dancer, Bridie Willis, TCRG, and is registered with "An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha" (The Irish Dancing Commission) the governing body situated in Dublin and which is supported by local councils throughout the world.
Our emphasis is on learning and enjoying dance steps - our Motto is "bain sult as do damhsa - Is bónas é an buaigteoir" (or enjoy your dancing - winning is a bonus). We do however have our fair share of success, and have provided many displays and exhibitions of traditional irish dancing - and have performed at many special events over the years.
ADULT classes are also available on a Tuesday evening in Thornton Heath – as well as passing on the cultural heritage and tradition of Irish dance, it can also build stamina and strength; help keep bones healthy; improve posture; improve muscle tone and help with flexibility as well as being good cardiovascular exercise. Also the benefits of remembering the different steps will give your memory a workout too.
