Why Irish Dance?

Kristin Butke Irish dancers performing at O'Brien's Irish Pub in Warrenton Va.

The answer is simple. Its rich history and tradition embody a time when family and community were the core values that bound us together. Irish dancing is about music, choreography and story-telling. Our students are athletes, friends, competitors, scholars, and fierce individuals — but most importantly, they are a community of dancers committed to sharing their art.
