Meet Your Teachers
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.

Testimonial: I am definitely a fan!
My daughter has taken pre-Irish, and now Irish dance, and a creative dance class for a birthday party where we rented a studio at ADI for a couple of hours. In all cases, I was impressed with the instructors... and they are great with the kids. The office is very helpful and responsive as well. The prices are reasonable.
From my experience with the classes we've taken, they focus on teaching the dance and not doing showy performances with fancy costumes (where your child is on stage for 3 minutes). My daughter is enjoying dance and learning a lot. I'm definitely a fan.
