When you walk into dance class for the first time or drop off your child at dance class for the first time, you probably don't envision where it could lead to. Other than maybe some recitals, some new friends, and maybe some medals or certificates along the way. I know I never expected to make dancing my livelihood, live in Ireland, travel the world, or meet my spouse all through Irish dance. Is this journey typical? No, but it does show the potential a child has if they have the passion, drive, and dedication to take their dancing to the greatest heights. There's room for dancers attending class and their highlight of the year being the recital just like there's room for dancers who want to earn as many opportunities as possible. As they say, every journey starts with a single step. Want to take your first step with us? Classes this summer and fall are open at www.irishdancect.com

Is your child a social butterfly 🦋? Or a bit of a wallflower 🌼? I was most definitely a wallflower. Something about Irish dance changed that for me. My closest friends even to this day are all from Irish dancing and from all around the globe. Irish dancing is a very social dance form, both in our classes as well as ceili and set dancing disciplines that by nature include a group of people. We work hard to develop team spirit, camaraderie, and inclusion of everyone in everything we do and it shows from the mentorship, friendship, and companionship we see on a daily basis here. I still tend to be on the quiet side, but Irish dancing absolutely helped me out of my comfort zone, meet new people, and bond over a common interest. And for social butterflies? Wow, Irish dancing must be a dream come true! Instead of being quieted or socialization stifled, it's encouraged in this dance form 🦋
