Diana Kirk

Diana’s training in the U.K. included classical ballet (BBO Advanced, ISTD Advanced, IDTA Advanced), tap (BBO Advanced), modern theatre dance (ISTD Advanced), acrobatics and highland dance (UKAPTD). This was followed by formal teaching qualifications in classical ballet with ISTD (Hons) and IDTA (Hons) and highland dance with UKAPTD. In the UK, Diana taught both adults and children, entering candidates for examinations with BBO and ISTD, choreographed for the local Operatic Society and worked with teenagers at the Youth Centre. Diana has attended classes and workshops in contemporary dance (various styles), Skinner Releasing Technique (with Raewyn Thorburn), Alexander Technique, Classical Ballet and Floor Barre (with Timothy Gordon), Progressing Ballet Technique (with Marie Walton-Mahon) and Franklin Method (with Morten Dithmer). She continues to enjoy both attending class and teaching adults, with a focus on safe technique.
