The Shovlin Academy of Irish Dance offers 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. We strive to develop an appreciation for Irish music and dance while preparing dancers for the competition or performance stage.  Dancers are given the opportunity to compete at feiseanna at all levels and perform at various events locally.  We encourage students to be proud of and share what they’ve learned with others.
