Taught by the Riverdance professional dancers, the participants of the 6 day summer school will learn the iconic choreography from the show.
They will also train in all aspects of being a professional dancer and students over the age of 18 can use this week as an audition for the show.
As well as all the dancing, there will be a strong emphasis on nutrition, mindset, strength and conditioning, leadership, team work, rest and recovery and general personal management that is sure to make a difference in every dancer’s life.
The finale of each school week is a fully staged rehearsed performance of Riverdance featuring all the students in front of an audience of family and friends.
While most of each day will be spent dancing, there will also be talks given by special guest speakers giving the students great insight into the creative and business side of the industry.

For me the summer school was one of the most educational, rewarding, motivational, challenging weeks of my life. Every day I wanted to do better than the last. I’ve never learned so much so quickly and will use what I’ve learnt in every aspect of life. I will be forever grateful for the week I had

The Riverdance School is really tough work and they are seriously disciplined. Learning from and spending time with the principle dancers who I have always looked up to is just amazing! I loved the experience

On Santa Clara or San Jose California I took a girlfriend and our high school sons to your performance.
Wow what a marvelous afternoon.
It was one of the best days I ever had.
I wish your performers could had seen the joy you gave to our group that day.
My boys were the typical HS football players from a good team/school yet they were transfixed on your stage that day. You showed them in a few hours what I had been struggling to explain about how large the world was.
They also were in lust with the lady solo singer, ha ha. True!
Your team work related to them also.

Waiting for your return to California.
