Education and Outreach
Passing on the tradition of Irish culture is the primary work of all the Comhaltas branches worldwide. From beginners, regardless of age, looking to learn about Irish music or dance to advanced learning programs, competition and expert certifications, Claddagh na nGael looks to provide the quality programs, expert mentorship and nurturing environment that will ensure success and enjoyment.
While each of the disciplines of the Irish tradition requires focus, commitment and lots of practice, the benefits gained are exponential in relation to the effort expended. The ability to enjoy one’s heritage and to have a sense of place and self through language, dance or music is priceless and will yield pastimes that will offer a lifetime of pleasure and reward.
Currently, Claddagh na nGael is offering after school group lessons for grammar school aged children in both traditional music and step dancing. For more details and registration information, please see the links below.
As our branch grows, we plan to expand our educational opportunities to include:
• Youth and adult Irish Language courses
• Intermediate and advanced music lessons, workshops and certifications
• In school music group music programs
• Participation in local & regional fleadhanna (sanctioned competitions)
