Approved Dance Centre


Tiffany Theatre College is an ISTD Approved Dance Centre which means students can be entered for the ISTD dance teaching qualifications, Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) and Diploma in Dance Education (DDE). Classes for teaching qualifications are included in the weekly timetable, but are optional and subject to demand. Unlike other colleges which can only offer this course at weekends and holidays, TTC is fortunate to be able to run it alongside regular performance courses.


Complete package


Many students take their DDI in their first year followed by their DDE in their second year. Children’s classes are run throughout the evening at the TTC studios and students entering for the DDI/ DDE are encouraged to stay to watch and assist alongside our qualified children’s staff. This helps the student become knowledgeable of the syllabi, experience teaching children first hand, and cover the first unit of DDI. Additionally TTC is able to offer the written element of DDI/DDE, as well as the practical, and hosts students from other colleges who wish to gain their full qualification. Crucially, students who achieve the DDE are able to submit candidates for ISTD examinations.




Fees for exams, books, candidate portfolio and the ADC (Approved Dance Centre) supplement are all required for students taking the qualifications. A price plan is available at reception.
