Lexington Irish dance school

You’ve always wanted to try something new, right? Now is the time to dance with our community-based Lexington Irish dance school where you’ll find fun, affordable instruction with a certified teacher for both children and adults. Our classes are offered in partnership with Artworks at the Carver School, a community cultural arts program in downtown Lexington.

What is our Lexington Irish dance school like? We focus our dance classes on group choreography — known as ceili dancing — for fun, for exercise, for performance and for competition.

Registration for 2018-2019 classes will begin in August 22, 2018 at noon via the Lexington Parks and Recreation website.

New this year!  We’re adding a pre-school Irish Dance class on Mondays for children ages 3-5.

Bluegrass Ceili Academy is more than just a dance school.

Perspective. Experience. Community. Mission. It’s what matters.

What does that mean?

It’s the way we look at things, the experience we bring to the classroom, it’s building and giving back to our community, and living our mission by providing a supportive learning environment for dancers of all ages and skill levels.
