As a school, we seek to create a strong sense of community with dancers, teachers, and families working together in a supportive manner. The atmosphere at Cashel Dennehy is one where lifelong friendships can be made. Because of this philosophy, our families enjoy an active role in their experience with the school.
There is something for everyone at Cashel Dennehy.
Our primary goal is to provide a safe and friendly atmosphere that nurtures dancers as they learn. Students gain self-confidence as they master new steps; they also develop poise and self-discipline. As classes progress, dancers are encouraged to improve their skills; they are challenged to perform to the best of their ability. Caring and well-respected teachers at Cashel Dennehy recognize that each dancer is unique; students are encouraged to develop their individual talents and abilities in a supportive and respectful environment.
All dancers are welcome to participate in our many public performances, through which they can gain the confidence and recognition that come from dancing before an appreciative audience. However, no one is required to perform. Your daughter or son can always just dance for fun!
At Cashel Dennehy, competition can be an exciting and enjoyable part of the Irish dance experience. For those dancers who choose to compete, teachers strive to promote teamwork, support, and a healthy competitive spirit. Dancers are given the opportunity to compete at the local, regional, national, and world competition levels as individuals as well as on ceili teams, which are eight person teams that have made their mark at all levels including a first place victory at the 2010 Glasgow, Scotland World Championships of Irish Dance!
