Irish Dance classes improve balance, coordination, strength, stamina, confidence, and teamwork. Through laughter and tears, peers practice and perform with pride in a positive, supportive, and dynamic environment.
The De Danaan School of Irish Dance offers recreational, competitive, and performance Irish dance classes, from pre-beginner to open championship level, from ages 3 to adult.
All new dancers are invited to come try a class for free, at any time of the year. We want to make sure you are in the right place – come tour the studio, meet the teachers, and ask any questions you might have before making a commitment.
