Irish Dance Manchester

Claddagh has enjoyed success as an adult Irish dancing class for over 25 years. We are a non profit-making organisation which relies on the collective knowledge and experience of all its members, and classes are taught cooperatively.

We learn light and heavy dances (Riverdance style) and ceili (team dancing) which is taught by Chris Mathewson, a TMRF qualified teacher.

In the past, Claddagh ceili teams have entered and been successful in several regional, national and even international competitions.

Our members enjoy a lively social life including meals and theatre trips.

We welcome dancers of all ages and abilities including complete beginners, and we pride ourselves on our friendly, inclusive ethos.

New members may join on the first Monday of every quarter (January, April, July, October) and class fees are 5, payable online. Classes take place every Monday (apart from Bank Holidays) from 7pm - 9pm.

Soft, comfortable footwear is recommended.
