About Millennium Academy of Irish Dance

Millennium Academy of Irish Dance was founded in 2001 with just fifteen students and has since grown to over 100 students. Millennium Academy maintains small classes with a low student to teacher ratio, which enables us to give each dancer personal attention and encouragement. At Millennium Academy we focus on three disciplines of Irish Dance: solo dancing, team dancing and performance dancing in both soft shoe and heavy shoe. We give the dancers many opportunities and outlets for their dancing. Throughout the year they may compete in a feis, perform at a festival, dance at a nursing home or demonstrate their steps in a recital.

Interested in Competing?

Millennium Academy offers a competitive program for dancers wishing to progress through the competition levels and compete at Oireachtas, National and World Championship level competitions. In Millennium Academy’s third year (2003) we had our first qualifier for the World Irish Dance Championships held in Belfast, Ireland. Each year we continue to have numerous dancers qualify for and place at the All Irelands, North American Nationals and World Championships. We encourage each dancer to set their own personal goals and we devise an individual program to help them achieve these goals. By doing this, each dancer has a positive experience that enables them to gain self-confidence and take pride in their accomplishments.

Not interested in competition? You won’t be left out!

We also offer dancers the opportunity to dance recreationally. This leads to many performance engagements in school recitals and shows for the general public. Some of these performance opportunities include the Granville, Lancaster, Newark and Dublin Irish Festivals, and performing with bands such as Gaelic Storm, Eileen Ivers, Natalie MacMaster and others. We also perform for local nursing homes, schools and other organizations. At Millennium Academy of Irish Dance you choose the level of commitment that is right for you. Whether you’re interested in dancing recreationally, participating in performances, or competing, we make sure that Irish Dance is a fun, rewarding and positive experience for every child.
