What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Heinzman family started in Ireland but brought their love of Irish dance to the States many years ago. Itty Heinzman is well known in the Irish dance community for her passion of teaching others the Irish culture and the sport. Our instructors continue this legacy in each class.
