On Jan. 2, 2019, An Coimisiún Le Rincí Gaelacha (CLRG) – the Irish Dancing Commission – sent its members a copy of the the organization’s proposed anti-bullying policy. Bluegrass Ceili Academy, Lexington’s community-based Irish dance program, supports this policy and immediately adopted the proposed statement. A copy of of the policy is below:
- Bullying and unkindness, whether physical or emotional, are entirely unacceptable at Bluegrass Ceili Academy. It conflicts sharply with the school’s principles and will always be treated seriously.
- Bullying is behavior by an individual or group, repeated over time, which intentionally hurts another individual or group, either physically or emotionally.
- Bullying can take many forms (including cyber-bullying via text messages or the internet).
- If you feel that you are being bullied, or are concerned about bullying, please contact your teacher immediately.
Bluegrass Ceili Academy is dedicated to promoting traditional Irish dance by providing a supportive learning environment for dancers of all ages and skill levels.
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.
