Performance and competition Irish Step Dancers
I have been dancing with the Nashville Irish Step Dancers under the direction of Mary Moran for 21 years. I feel truly fortunate that I found this school and Mary! Mary brings the best out of everyone, regardless of their level of dance accomplishment. She also tailors the steps to highlight each individual dancer's strengths. She makes everyone feel like they can always improve and reach their goals. She is so positive! I also really appreciate that she lets everyone participate in shows that the school puts on. Some schools only let their champion level dancers appear in shows. As an older adult, I greatly appreciate that Mary's school is so inclusive. Our dancers are like family and we all support each other. That comes from the top. Mary and NISD are proof that you can achieve the pinnacles of competitive Irish dance and remain thoughtful, kind, and supportive.
Not only teaches Irish dance but also develops teamwork and confidence. She is an amazing teacher and cares about each of her students. NISD has helped my daughter come out of her shell and she has confidence that not only shows in her performances but in other social arenas as well.
