We are excited to offer IRISH DANCE! We have joined forces with the Michael Dillon School of Irish dancing where they take pride in offering one of the most forward-thinking and comprehensive Irish dance programs in America. Dancers from ages three and up, are taught everything from soft and hard shoe solo dance to ceili, figure choreography, dance drama, and show dancing.
Dancers in the performance program regularly compete at the national and international levels representing the Western Region as well as the USA. Students partake in dance grade examinations, helping secure professional dance opportunities. Former Michael Dillon students have also progressed to take the TCRG Examinations to be fully qualified Irish Dance Teachers awarded by CLRG Dublin, Ireland
