About our Classes

Classes at the Goodwin Academy range in level from Beginner to Champion, all dancers learn the fundamentals of both traditional and modern Irish dance.  Our philosophy is to seek out the method of instruction that resonates with each dancer, as each one of our students is viewed as unique and filled with endless potential.  

Our emphasis on ceili (team) as well as solo Irish dancing encourages our students to view one another as teammates working towards a common goal, and because of this our dancers enjoy a very positive experience in class and at competition.
