The Nutcracker group

So, we pulled off the nearly impossible and gathered five families of Irish dancers at the same place at the same time.

This group shot is for our program photo for the Nutcracker we were asked to choreograph a routine for.


Hello friends,

We are at a monumental stage in of our Irish dance school’s history. After nearly 12 years teaching in the area, we finally have dancers ready to go to the Irish dance world championships!

They have worked tirelessly to make it this far and we could use your help. We are trying to raise money to send our dancer to Killarney next April to compete in the Irish dance world championships.

As you can imagine, it takes money to go there. We are looking to raise $2,000. The rest, we can come up with ourselves.

Anything you can donate would be much appreciated my us and our dancers.

Thank you,
The Tew Academy of Irish Dance.
