Community Involvement

The Adelaide Academy of Irish Dancing and Performing Arts encourages its dancers to share their talents, to develop cross-cultural skills  and to embrace acceptance of the young, aged, sick and infirm and all those who make up “community”.

The school is a family school, with family ideals and objectives. Recently celebrating a milestone of 50 years of continuous operation in South Australia, the Adelaide Academy of Irish dancing offers a nurturing environment, with unconditional support for dancers and their families alike and many hundreds of young girls and boys, and some not so young, have passed through the doors of the Adelaide Academy. Some of these have gone on to become qualified teachers and adjudicators in their own right, others have remained very dear friends, for some we are now teaching their children or grandchildren. We are proud of our Irish Heritage and an important objective of the School is to take our Irish Culture to the wider community. We do this by giving of our time to perform at  nursing homes; retirement villages; schools; pre-school centres; corporate functions; and cultural events. Our busiest time is St. Patrick’s Day where sometimes up to 5 or 6 groups of dancers, with parents in tow, travel off in different directions to bring this great celebration to many.  

If you are interested in booking a group to demonstrate Irish Dancing in your community, please call 0425 028 203.

Celebrating St. Patricks Day the Adelaide Academy way

Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in the St. Patricks Day Parade. We had a great turnout of dancers and supporters. Nigel’s ute looked great all decorated, and we cannot thank him enough for allowing us to use the ute for the Parade. Thank you to all the little dancer and friends who rode on the Ute, and a huge thank you to those who marched.
It was a great Parade and a fantastic start to the week of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Thank you to those who danced at the Irish Hall. A beautiful display and we had so many comments from people about how lovely it was.
Thank you to Fiona, Kathryn, Laura, Amy, Ryan, Louise,  Aidan, Jemma, Ava, Faye, Saskia, Lilly and Alan, Tom, Jess, Megan, Cassidy, Laura and Sophie.
