ADULT IRISH MUSIC
Learn to play the tin whistle and bodhran (Irish drum) by a qualified music teacher from Ireland. Small beginner group classes in a supportive environment.
An absolutely beautiful Irish dance Academy… our girl flourished in many ways and as a little family we had a ball meeting all who are part of this beautiful academy. Miss you dearly and wish you many wonderful years ahead. Well done.
The attitude of Vanessa and Christine has led this to be 'the place' to Irish Dance in Darwin! A very personal environment with high quality teaching and a great, tight knit parent community to go with it. Highly recommended for both advanced and newcomer dancers alike! :)
