The Deirdre O’ Mara School of Irish Dance provides a unique experience that is both cultural & creative, fun & hard work. Competition is an option, but not a requirement. Scoil Rince Saoirse (Freedom Dance School) is the competitive part of our school. The only requirement to take classes is a love of dance and a willingness to work hard & have fun.

Irish DanceWe also offer ballet classes for ages 3 and up, kids and adult boot camp  and summer camp for 4 weeks in July/August.

Irish dance or ballet themed birthday parties are available at the dance studio.

“I feel our school provides the best combination of the traditional & the many changes that have occurred in the world of Irish dance.
My wish for our dancers is that they dance with not just their feet but with their heart.
Our school will develop confidence in an atmosphere of growth & inspiration.”
Deirdre O’ Mara TMRF. Founder and director.

Deirdre O’ Mara is from Dublin Ireland, & studied with Marie Walsh ADCRG and Mary McElroy S.D.C.R.G.
