Royal Academy of Dance

The Royal Academy of Dance was founded in 1920 and is one of the world's most influential dance education organisations. The RAD promotes knowledge, understanding and practice of dance. With Darcy Bussell CBE, as the president of the organisation, the Royal Academy of Dance leads the way in providing a world-class ballet education. The Odette School of Ballet is a registered ballet school with the RAD and provides learning through the RAD system of dance education and examinations.

Principal - Emma Mahony

Classes are taught by Emma Mahony, a registered teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance. Emma also has a Diploma in Dance Instruction (ISTD) and a Certificate in Exercise and Health Fitness (NCEF).

Emma has extensive experience teaching young and adult learners; she is proud to have created a ballet school which celebrates the fun and enjoyment that dance brings. Emma grew up learning ballet in Bayside and Baldoyle and she is proud to now offer dance classes in her home community of Dublin 13.


The Odette School of Ballet was founded on the principle that every person should have the opportunity to dance. Driven by a love of classical ballet, and a desire to share this love, Emma Mahony has created a school that prides itself on positivity, encouragement and passion. Classical technique and posture will be taught; and performance, musicality and choreography skills will be inspired. The Odette School of Ballet is the place where children and adults can become the strong and elegant dancers that they were born to be.

Emma has also introduced BarreConcept and Bootcamp classes to the timetable to encourage adults to be strong, healthy and happy; and to promote fitness in an enjoyable and exciting way!
