Scoil Rince FitzGerald is a new Irish Dance school. Right now, we are primarily based out of southwestern Connecticut. We are open to expanding to new areas where there is interest. Everyone is welcome in this school. Children 18 months - Adults. We also actively encourage children and adults with special needs to try it out. Classes will vary depending on age an ability. The "littles" might be working on balance and listening skills while adults will be having fun participating in ceili dancing. At SRF, we are willing to teach you what you would like to learn and encourage you to follow your dance dreams.
I started dancing at 22 years old, making me an adult. Sadly, I missed out on being able to complete at the "kid level" and going on to do things like qualifying for world competition. However, I did compete as an adult and did very well for myself, even being on a nationally ranked team. Despite my competitive streak, I always knew I wanted to teach. The best part of my week is when I am teaching with little faces smiling around me. I am not famous nor am I the best dancer in the world. Dancing is just a part of who I am, more than something I do.
