We have been teaching in the Houston area and beyond for over 17 years. We are registered teachers with An Chomhdhail, the Irish Dance Teachers Congress, based out of Dublin, Ireland. We teach authentic Irish dance, some basic Irish language, history and Irish music.
Though we are not a religious dance school, we are a conservative school in our scope and our teachers uphold traditional Christian values in their personal approach to teaching. We never compromise dancers through participation in events, etc. Sadly, other schools in the area do.
We only perform at family-oriented events and competitions. We are background-checked as well. If you are looking solely for a dance form to compete in, we are not the fit for you. If however, you want authentic instruction with the backing of an organization that has the reputation of the most stringent teacher’s certification behind it, and you want to learn about our culture and all that it has to offer, we are for you. We are the only school in Texas with this type of program.
Our founder and head teacher Richard Tew, runs the “Rince Resource” Youtube channel which since 2007 has shared Irish dance and culture to the masses. We run the longest-running Irish dance, music culture podcast “Rince Radio,” telling the whole story of our culture. With over 85 interviews from top dancers, teachers and performers, we are helping form the true history of Irish dance and music culture that was never before told. www.youtube.com/rinceresource/
