  • The Leneghan Academy of Irish Dance
    • The Leneghan Academy was founded in 1992 by Burke School alumna, Catherine Leneghan. Catherine trained under many prestigious instructors both at home and abroad, including Bob Masterson. Taking her Irish roots from Ballycroy,Tourmekeady and Islandeady Mayo she was steeped in Irish tradition early on. She is certified as a teacher (TCRG), adjudicator (ADCRG) and grade examiner (BG) of Irish dance and is fully accredited through Dublin Ireland and a menber of IDTAMA and IDTANA (regonal and national associations). This permits her students to compete worldwide.

  • The Brady Campbell Irish Dance School
    • After eight years of touring with "Lord of the Dance", Pat Campbell founded a now highly esteemed dance school with his wife, and fellow "Lord of the Dance" alumna, Rebecca Brady-Campbell.

  • Tessie Burke School of Irish Dance
    • For over 50 years, Cleveland native Tessie Burke has dedicated her life to teaching Irish dance.
