Our girls started Irish dancing with Mary aged 4 and 5. From the very first class they developed a great love for Irish Dancing. Every week they are so excited about their class and come home elated from all they have learned. Mary’s classes combine both fun and skill development in an extremely clever way so that the children develop a confidence in performance even before they have learned an entire dance. Within a matter of weeks, the girls took part in a show which showcased a range of all ages and abilities.It was evident that every student thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful experience. Mary has encouraged the girls to take part in feiseanna as they showed a readiness. She was hugely supportive and helpful in preparing for the feis. She was also present on the day and guided us through what could have been a daunting experience.
Mary treats the children with an incredible kindness and builds the children’s self-esteem as she moulds them into fabulous dancers. I would recommend Mary Grimes School of Dancing to any parent who would like their child to learn Irish Dancing in a fun, supportive and professional environment.
