Bridie and the Conor Academy is thriving in Croydon and Streatham and continues to perform at local events too; School fetes; church fayres; nursing homes and hospitals; local authority family days; shopping centres; weddings receptions; birthday parties; 1st Holy Communions and even a funeral.

 

The Academy is also very proud to be represented by its pupils at the British National Championships; the Great Britain Championships and the Southern England Qualifying Championships. Pupils have also performed at the World Irish Dancing Championships - a very proud moment.

 

Having asked Bridie what her most memorable moment was – this was her reply; “Every time I see my pupils perform, is a memorable moment, whether it is their first class feis, or display, or competing at the Great Britains or at the Worlds. One former pupil is currently tasting success whilst touring the globe with Riverdance.  I still get a wonderful feeling knowing they are all there because of me, that I’ve touched their lives in a small way”.
