The O´Connor School of Irish Dance in North Vancouver (North Lonsdale United Church, Queensbury Corner, and Parkgate Rec Centre), has been operating on the North Shore since 2003. Terri and her assistant instructors ensure the love of dance through structured, fun classes for children from 5 years old to adult. Terri’s assistant instructors have various qualifications ranging from daycare qualifications (responsible adult in a childcare setting – first aide for children), to ballet technique training accreditation. All focus on making class a fun, safe environment, where children can grow their confidence through achieving the different skills, elements, dances, and activities provided by the teachers and school.
This is the best formula for fun and success.
Because of the high level of attention to detail, Terri likes to keep her class sizes small, so early registration is recommended.
Some students, such as our adult dancers, enjoy recreational dancing with their new dance friends, while others work to compete one day at the regional, North American and World Championship levels. All dancers are given the opportunity to partake in performances and in-house activities, shows, and fundraisers.
All dancers from the absolute beginner to championship level are taken into consideration for lesson planning. Individual attention is given when needed, and goal setting is done with the parent/dancer on a regular basis to ensure success.
Terri and O’Connor Irish Dancers have been proudly servicing the North Shore for 19 years. firstname.lastname@example.org
