Classes for everyone
From 4+ years to adult and
Learn Michael Flatley style dance onstage and meet cast members of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games
Welcome to the
Michael Flatley DANCE Academy
It was always a dream of mine to bring my style of Irish Dance to the world stage and I am proud to say that 20 years on, my shows have been seen by over 50 million people across the globe. Over the years I have received countless letters from young people who have been inspired to learn to dance after watching the show, and it has been humbling for me that many of them have realised their dreams through sheer dedication and have become stars themselves in my shows.
Michael Flatley DANCE aims to teach this unique style of Irish Dance to children and teenagers in a positive and mentoring environment that builds self-confidence while instilling an appreciation of rhythm, movement, music, fitness and culture.
Girls and boys of all levels, from beginner to advanced are invited to join whether it is just for fun or if their dream is to perform onstage. As I have always said, “If you believe in yourself and are willing to work hard, then nothing is impossible”.
