"The workshops that were delivered were fun and engaging for the children. The workshop leader was dynamic and really held the children's interest. I would absolutely recommend these workshops for any school setting." Luton Infant School, Assistant Headteacher
Darragh is passionate about engaging with and inspiring children and young people both in a formal education setting and also through his work as a choreographer and movement director.
As a DBS checked and fully qualified teacher (QTLS, AISTD), Darragh has worked across the education sector for the past 15 years in primary schools through to third level, working on both a permanent and also sessional basis.
At third level, Darragh has lectured in Jazz Technique, Musical Theatre, Audition Technique, Body Conditioning and Choreography at Trinity Laban, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Mountview, Reynolds Performing Arts, Italia Conti, Millennium Performing Arts, AMTA, Tiffany Theatre College and Pineapple.
At primary level, Darragh has worked throughout the country, specialising in movement sessions which take inspiration from subjects covered in the national curriculum. These topics are then brought to life by exploring physicality in a fresh and relevant way, and by using techniques to inspire young, creative minds.
"Absolutely amazing. The children loved the sessions and got so much out of them - not only linked to the story but drama techniques and dance. It was an enjoyable and worthwhile experience and Darragh was the right balance of fun but 'in charge'." St Germans Primary School, Assistant Headteacher
