The Drake School of Irish Dance Fort Walton Beach was established in October of 2004.
After attending Karl Drake's first workshop in the local area, dancers from the Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, and Panama City area eagerly became the first dancers for this branch.
After just two months, a handful of dancers attended their first feis in Orlando, Florida.
Since then, we have grown to a group of 40+ dancers. All but a few of these dancers are competitive. We currently have 7 champions, and 2 National Qualifiers!
Our dancers also perform on a regular basis.
These dancers have performed at a wide variety of venues from the Destin Commons to Assisted Living facilities to our biggest performances to date, the Village of Baytowne Wharf in Destin and Seaside on St. Patrick's Day! Our group is always ready to entertain!
Drake Irish Dancers of FWB continues to grow rapidly
And we are very excited about the opportunities that are yet to come for these young dancers! This branch is under the direction of Cindy Brainerd, TCRG.
