There is no way to dance a jig without joy. As with most traditional Irish dances, the bouncy choreography inherent to the form inspires enthusiasm in the dancers and audience. For aspiring steppers hoping to master the form for recreation, competition, or just to appease the ghost of W.B. Yeats, Leneghan Academy of Irish Dance has been the Cleveland area's premier institute for Irish dancing since 1992. Instructors steeped in tradition and sporting TCRG and ADCRG certifications in Irish dance transform the fledglings into footloose masters of Celtic syncopation, with many students advancing to national- and world-level competition or enlightening the Cleveland St. Patrick's Day Parade with their graceful steps.
Originally from Haiti, lead instructor Anderson Sylvestre brings his Caribbean flair to the floor, whether he is stepping out for a national ballroom competition or teaching first-time dancers. Along with his fellow teachers, Anderson imparts the skills, self-confidence, and excitement of learning a new dance to students of all levels. His classes cover a host of styles, including tango, merengue, West Coast swing, and bolero, and also teaching old-time dances such as the lindy—inspired by Lyndon Johnson's graceful movements after stubbing his toe on Air Force One.
Jose Dias not only earned his black belt in jujitsu with guidance from a member of the famous Gracie martial-arts family, but he also taught at one of Carlos Gracie Jr.'s top training schools, Gracie Barra Rio de Janeiro. He brings his expertise to Rio Pro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, where both kids and adults can learn this form of self-defense. Though the school's name highlights jujitsu, instructors also teach several other areas of study. Class options include judo and mixed martial arts, which, despite popular belief, is not a class in which students use kickboxing gloves to punch through wooden boards.
