They can’t wait to get to dance when they have class! The owner is friendly and professional and works great with the kids. Excellent dance community. Highly recommended!"
 Spencer Wittich, Rince Nua Dad
"My daughter started Irish dance about a year and a half ago when she had just turned 10. She fell in love with it immediately! The teachers are wonderful and supportive, and they are happy to meet with students where they are whether they want to dance for fun or competitions. We LOVE Rince Nua and are so happy to have found our Irish dancing home there!"
 Ana Hulzebos, Rince Nua Mom

My daughter instantly fell in love with the school and teachers, we love the teaching approach and the confidence it has given her. Opportunities for both group and private lessons allow you to choose the level and effort that is right for you. Multiple opportunities throughout the year for recreational performances for all levels as well. We love being part of Rince Nua!"
