Excellence.   Dedication.   Teamwork.   Family.

Excellence. Dedication. Teamwork. Family.

Welcome to the Shovlin Academy of Irish Dance, offering solo and figure dancing instruction to students ages 5 and up. Participation in the academy provides each student with the opportunity to grow physically and mentally in a supportive environment while developing an appreciation for Irish music and dance.

A strong part of the Irish Dancing culture is performing. We encourage students to be proud of and share what they’ve learned with others. Dancers are given opportunities to perform at various events locally. To book Shovlin Academy dancers for your event, please see our Performances page. All Shovlin Academy students, even the youngest of beginners, are eligible to participate in the competitive arena. While not mandatory, students are trained with what they will need to enter an Irish Dance competition (called a feis, pronounced “fesh”). Since we teach to the feis syllabus, the opportunity to attend feiseanna is always there if they so choose at some point. This provides a structured goal-driven environment where all dancers can see their progress over the years.
