Sisters Sarah Sadowski and Mary Cantin started Irish dancing at the age of 4 and haven't stopped since.  Both champion dancers themselves, Sarah and Mary have competed regionally and nationally, and enjoy passing on their passion for Irish dancing.  As mothers, they are committed to ensuring that classes are taught in a manner that balances high expectations with compassion and encouragement, Maura Olson, co-director of Goodwin Academy,  is committed to helping each dancer reach their fullest potential by teaching classes that are motivating, challenging, and fun.  Trained in ballet and tap as well as Irish dance, Maura enjoys motivating her students to reach their personal best. 



Together, Sarah, Maura, and Mary have taught dancers who have gone on to place in the top of the region, North America, and who have gone on to dance at the World Championship level. Goodwin ceili teams have consistently placed among the top in our region, and traditional set dancers have won numerous regional championships.
