Happy New Year from Scoil Rince Ni Riada: Irish Dance Las Vegas

Happy New Year from Scoil Rince Ni Riada: Irish Dance Las Vegas

We hope you all had a great christmas and have a safe and wonderful Happy New Year.

We had a tremendous year this year. We were a part of the Martin Percival School in Las Vegas for over 6 years. A wonderful mentor and teacher, Martin realized that he needed to move on from Irish Dancing. As sad as that was, it presented a wonderful opportunity for me to open up my own school. The support from Martin and  our current students and families was amazing and we have managed to grow a lot in just a little bit of time. Now we have a location in Henderson as well as Summerlin and are excited to add new classes and opportunities in the year and years to come.

We had a fun christmas ceili to end the 2013 year and our fall semester. We had so much fun that we will be trying to have a fundraiser ceili in May.

We also are looking forward to having a showcase(recital) in June. We have always been a part of the recitals of the studios we rent from but it’s time to have our own.

Take your friend to class day was a hit and we plan on having those every few months.

And St. Patrick’s day season is right around the corner. If you have any show opportunities or if you would like to book us for a show, please contact the school.

The kids have grown so much in the last 4 months and we are very excited to see what the next six months will bring.

Thank you for being a part of our dance family! We love you all!
