Brona MacNally

Brona started ballet at the age of four. During her time as a dance student in Ireland, she danced with the Dublin City Ballet and the Irish National Ballet Company.

At the age of seventeen, Brona gained a place at the Royal Ballet School in London, renowned as one of the best ballet training centres in the world.

Brona was the first Irish girl to ever graduate from their three-year training programme.

At the School, she studied Classical Ballet, Character and National Dance, Spanish, Contemporary, Repertoire, Music, Dance Anatomy and Child Psychology.

Brona joined the school in London the same year as Darcey Bussell CBE who became one of the most famous ballerinas of her generation. During her time at the Royal Ballet, Brona was awarded a scholarship to train at the Vaganova School (the training centre of the Kirov Ballet Company) in Russia.

Brona returned to Dublin in 1989 to set up her own Dance School and has been delighted with the continued success and high standards achieved by her students. Over the years, a number of her senior students have gone abroad to pursue professional dance careers.

Brona is most interested in creating a love of dance that the students carry with them for the rest of their lives.
