The O’Leary Academy of Irish dancing is based in Bournemouth, England under the direction of Kate O’Leary TCRG. We offer traditional Irish dance classes for both children (4+) and adults from complete beginners to the world championship stage.
The academy was established in May 2018 with just 7 dancers. We now have over 60 dancers with over half competing at regional, national and international levels. At the O’Leary Academy of Irish dancing we believe that every dancer is unique, therefore the needs and experiences of dancers will not be the same. We will customise your Irish dancing journey to the individual needs of each dancer.
You can keep fit, make new friends and have fun whilst learning a beautiful art form to competition standard if you so wish. You may also have the opportunity to enter exams, dancing shows, as well as the World Championships. Whatever your reason for wanting to be an Irish dancer, we can help you fulfil your passion and dreams.
The O’Leary Academy of Irish Dancing is registered with the “Cumann Rince Dea Mheasa” (CRDM) governing body.
