We give our very best to every child who comes through our door.

The 4-Step Rince Nua Learning Process

1. The Foundation

Here's where we'll teach your child all the fundamentals and help her build a strong foundation in Irish Dance.

2. Learning the Steps

Your child will then begin to learn the steps and dances of our curriculum and start to grow a broader understanding of Irish Dance.

3. Local Opportunities

Knowing the steps and dances is great, but putting them to action at performances or competitions is where  additional fun, life skills, and progress is experienced.

4.  Next Level Education

Being able to Irish Dance is different then becoming a master performer, teacher, or competitor. Students now begin to discover their personal interests and explore modern Irish dance trends.
