Welcome to Claddagh School of Irish Dance
Excellence in Irish dance since 2008
At Claddagh School of Irish Dance, our dance programs cater to everyone—from toddlers to adults, making sure each dancer gets a comprehensive education in Irish culture, language, and both traditional and
modern dance styles.
We take pride in nurturing well-rounded dancers, fostering their potential in a positive learning environment, whether they aim to compete or simply dance socially. Offering classes both in-person at our Mackay and Marian studios and virtually for those beyond Mackay, we ensure accessibility for all passionate dancers.
What sets us apart? We are the exclusive Irish dance school in North Queensland to teach the Jump'n Jig Pre-school Program, designed for the little ones aged 18 months to 5 years. Our curriculum spans from progressive beginner classes for children and adults to advanced training for those reaching World Championship levels.
Dance with us and embrace the Claddagh spirit—a unique blend of tradition, modernity, and the joy of Irish dance!
Classes for everyone
We are passionate about sharing our love of Irish dance with everyone and we strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all our dancers. Our classes cover a variety of levels, from beginner to advanced, and are taught by experienced instructors dedicated to helping our students reach their full potential. Our focus on technique and artistic expression prepares our dancers for competitions, examinations, performances, or just a fun cultural activity.
