A Chat with Harp Irish Dance Company
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Harp Irish Dance Company has small class sizes so your student receives more personal instruction. We are certified by An Coimisiun le Rince Gaelacha, so our students enjoy competitive as well as performing opportunities. The teachers have combined over 40 years of experience competing and teaching.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Come wearing athletic or dance shoes (ballet slippers, jazz shoes, or Irish ghillies) as well as clothes you are ready to move around in. To get pumped and inspired for learning more about Irish dance, watch Riverdance or JIG The Documentary!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Harp Irish Dance Company seeks to provide an affordable Irish Dance and cultural experience for all ages by performing, competing and building friendships in a caring environment. We love to teach and inspire our students to learn, strengthen character, develop skills, and have fun!
What do you love most about your job?
My favorite thing about teaching is the moment when the light of understanding shows up in a student's eyes after working on a new dance: they feel ecstatic that their hard work and dedication have paid off, they celebrate by exclaiming or jumping for joy. I LOVE jumping right along with them.
