The Lewisham based JAD Irish Dance School.


‘Having starting dancing at the age of 4 it’s always been my passion. Irish dancing has taught me skill, discipline and the joy of dance and competition. I’ve made hundreds of friends over the years through this wonderful hobby and spent my whole career waiting to achieve the dream of opening my own school.

After placing third at the World championships 2 years previously, I decided to retire and spent a year revising for my teachers exam. The exam took place in Cork, Ireland in 2015, and the school was then opened by myself in February 2016.

We’re still a small school and I make no money from the business but my love of teaching children dancing keeps me passionate. We’d love new recruits and to spread the word about the school and Irish dancing as a hobby. All children age 3+ are welcome to join our little school and become part of the JAD London family’
