Welcome to the O'Connor Academy of Irish Dance



The O'Connor Academy of Irish Dance is based in Hull, Beverley and York, under the direction of Victoria Whincup, T.C.R.G. We are registered with An Coimisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha, the largest governing body for Irish Dance. 

We focus on teaching the traditional art of Irish Dance to boys and girls from the age of three, in a safe and friendly environment.

Our aim is to teach Irish Dancing to the best of a child's ability and to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience for all involved. Classes are held from beginner to championship level, starting from the age of three. Our classes are customised to suit each child, whether they want to compete, take part in displays or just dance for fun. 

 

Irish Dancing is a great way to keep fit, improve coordination and have fun! Please contact Victoria for an informal chat if you have any questions.
