The Irwin Academy of Irish Dance
Welcome to The Irwin Academy of Irish Dance
The Irwin Academy of Irish Dance ®
The Irwin Academy was founded in 2011 with 10 students by Katie Irwin Henry. The academy has developed in two locations. Our Columbus branch runs out of the Shamrock Club of Columbus and has over 40 families. Our other branch runs out of Broadway Bound Dance Centre in New Albany and has over 20 families. In 2014 Katie brought on a gifted and loving certified teacher, Kayce Long. The school offers classes throughout the week at both locations. We are involved in the Irish community as well as the communities in which our families live.
Our mission is to teach Irish step dance in a safe and effective learning environment while encouraging children and adults to enjoy and appreciate Irish culture. At Irwin Academy we work very closely to nurture our students. We teach with love and passion and instill respect for others and self-esteem. We are dedicated to teach our students to be proud and accomplished. Our dancers will know how to win and fall with grace. The students are surrounded by peers who share similar if not the same goals and commitment to Irish dance. We encourage our dancers to get to the next level and to be the best they can be. Your goals are our priority, whether your interest is increased involvement with your Irish Community, exercising, competing or professional dancing,
or just to have fun!
