The Irish program at Amanda’s Academy of Dance continues the legacy of honoring Irish heritage and tradition through the art of Irish dance. We are committed to teaching boys and girls dance that is traditional yet innovative in a nurturing and productive environment. We encourage the values of respect, self-discipline, self-confidence and teamwork. There are no auditions or qualifiers, just the individual’s interest in learning to Irish dance.
