Founded in 2008 by Beth Anne McFadden, TCRG, the McFadden Academy is the ONLY Irish Dance school in Vermont certified and accredited by An Coimisiún Le Rincí Gaelacha (the Irish Dancing Commission)!
This means that those students who wish to are able to participate and compete in local, regional, national and international competitions (though competing is not required).
Our students learn a great deal at the Academy and the benefits go far beyond just learning traditional Irish Dance steps. Our students also learn and develop:
- Good sportsmanship
- Fitness (lots of Cardio!)
- Cognitive Development
- A sense of Community
Perhaps most importantly our students, parents and instructors enjoy a wonderful camaraderie and sense of community. We truly are one big family!
Fun, fast-paced, exciting, challenging, and technical, Irish Dance is for Everyone –
you don’t have to be Irish!
