Dance Direction International is a well – respected and long established Dance Studio formed by Des van der Spuy and Debby Tomlinson. There are branches in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, and London, UK.
Des van der Spuy has been teaching since 1980 and was joined by Debby Tomlinson in the early 1990. Debby moved to London, Surrey in 1996 to open a branch there and hence Dance Direction International was formed.
