2022-2023 Class Schedule

Within six weeks of our daughter joing the Flying Irish, she was confidently dancing at competition. Her teacher, Mary-Sarah, has taught her about the importance of poise, practice, and self confidence. She has transformed from a child who would never want us to watch her perform, to a child who does nightly performances. She takes Irish dance with her everywhere ... meaning this is her new way of moving around. She has come so far in such a short period of time and looks forward to continuing her lessons and learning new skills. We highly recommend giving this beautiful dance skill a try at the Flying Irish Studio! (Lunenburg, MA)

My 9-year old daughter has been taking lessons at the Flying Irish Studio for 5 years and she truly loves it.  Getting the chance to dance in Irish step dancing shows and competitions has taught her that practice and hard work pays off. Watching you child's confidence grow in something they love to do is great to watch. (Ashburnham, MA)
