2023-2024 Class Enrollment

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)

I had no idea what to expect going into my daughter’s first Feis. I prepared her not to win; I didn’t want her to be disappointed if she didn’t place. But, WOW!! It was so fun watching her, and everyone. And I am beyond proud of my daughter and what she went out and did in front of so many people. She doesn’t get that confidence from me. She loves dancing and has had a really great start— I’d like to think it’s because she has some great teachers. (New Ipswich, NH)
