Our girls love going to Irish dance each week. Kate is kind, loving and patient in teaching our girls new dances and perfecting ones they have already learned. She pushes them to do their best with her genuinely supportive and positive attitude. She is a gem of a teacher and we are thrilled to be Emerald Isle students!

My children love dancing at Emerald Isle. There are so many great opportunities to showcase their dancing, including parades, fundraising events, competitions, classes, group and solo numbers, workshops with professional Irish dancers, recitals, and special public performances like Irish Heritage nights at the Philadelphia Phillies.

The competitions (feisannas) are spaced throughout the year at a variety of locations around the mid-atlantic, northeastern, and midwest portions of the country. Kate and her support staff work hard to make this a great experience for performers of any age. My son and daughter have learned valuable skills such as confidence, stage presence, technique, and following directions. The atmosphere is fun, supportive and engaging.

Miss Kate is the bestest Irish dance teacher EVER! She is very patient & takes her time with each student regardless of her/his level and helps them to realize their potential. Love her!
