What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After my years as a competitive Irish Dancer and perfoming with Riverdance the Show, I knew I wanted to give students what my instructors and mentors gave to me. They all gave me motivation, determination, discipline and the love of Irish Dance. I want to preserve the evolving art of Irish Dance.

Watching the progression of each student and them blossoming into their own individual dancer is one of my favorite things. Each dancer learns differently and each dancer has their own style. I enjoy being a part of the process of each student's journey. through dance.
