Emily Kennedy - ADCRG


Owner and instructor Emily Kennedy began dancing at the age of four with the Mary Deveney School of Dancing, Galway in the West of Ireland. Emily danced competitively for 14 years competing in numerous regional and international competitions including the All Ireland and World Championships in both ceili and solo.


On retiring from competitive dancing, Emily was offered a position with a professional touring company and thus began her professional dance career. For the next six years', Emily toured the world with a number of different dance shows on a full and part time basis. Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, North America and the South Pacific, Emily eventually retired and began to study for her TCRG qualification.


Emily qualified as an Irish Dance teacher in 2013 and is registered to the Australian Irish Dance Association Inc. and An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha, Dublin, Ireland.

In October 2022, Emily was successful in obtaining her ADCRG qualification  to become and Irish dance judge.
