Scanlon School of Irish Dancing

For Scanlon Dancers it’s not just about competing and winning – it’s about being part of a team and more importantly, being part of the Irish community.
We hold classes throughout Birmingham, Stourport and Solihull from beginner up through championship level.
Beginning from the age of 3 - the idea is to have fun and learn at the same time.
