I have always known that I would teach and it is great to have the opportunity to travel the world and pass all my experiences and knowledge on to so many. Even better still is to have taught such a diverse multi-cultural mix of children and adults and to watch them become so absorbed in the fantastic art of Irish Dancing, especially here in Hong Kong!
We encourage and sustain pride, uphold tradition, inspire loyalty and school spirit and strive to build and develop a sense of sportsmanship and building of Friendships among all our students.
One of our main aims is to also ensure that everyone has fun in a stress free enviroment. We are not a competitive dancing school but do offer the opportunity to attend a few competitions throughtout the year!
Everyone should dance! You are never too young or too old !
The school presents both Traditional Irish Dancing (reels and jigs) and the unique art form of 'Contemporary/performance Irish Dance'. a fusion of traditional Irish Dance with a Contemporary twist.
There will be opportunities to perform, compete in Feiseanna, take Irish Dancing examinations and particapate in workshops here in Hong Kong.(all optional). We had the pleasure of hosting a workshop conducted by the cast of Riverdance on there Farewell tour around Asia in 2010 and most recently had the pleasure of a informal session with World Irish Dance Champion Niall O Leary.
Last June we hosted the very first open platform feis , Irish Dancing competition, in Hong Kong and Asia, which was a huge success. Thanks to St Patrick's Irish Society, GAA, Irish Embassy/ Consulate of Ireland,Hong Kong, Delaneys and many more for their continued support!
Irish dancing is healthy, vibrant, energetic, fluid and elegant and presents both children and adults the opportunity to explore dance improvisation and work interactively and creatively with others. It will teach self awareness, a better understanding of one's body, improves co-ordination and also helps in conditioning, strengthening and improving flexibility realignment.
Our classes offer an opportunity to experience an art form using movement to music that will increase confidence and self esteem in an expressive ,fun and imaginative way!
