About our Adult Irish Dance Classes

Continuous learning

We'll help you get started in this wonderful cultural Irish tradition that has captivated audiences all over the world through performances of the River Dance.

Irish dance  students who are just starting out will get familiar with the fundamental steps of the jig and the reel, as well as how to combine those steps into basic solo and ceili (group) dances.

Students at the intermediate Irish dancing level will incorporate patterning that is more complicated as well as preparations for hard shoe.

Class Attire

Comfortable dance attire. Ghillies for ladies and jazz shoes for men.

Meet Your Teacher

Becky Leary


Becky started her Irish dancing career with the American Dance Institute as a young child in the late 90's after watching the highly acclaimed Riverdance performance over and over and over again on VHS.

Her fondness for Irish Step only grew from there and she remained an ADI student through high school.

In her down time Becky enjoys crocheting, playing board games, watching her husband barbeque, and reluctantly rooting on the Mariners. She works for a local non-profit that provides camps and programs for families impacted by childhood cancer.
