The Duffy School of Irish Dance
Creating a culture of positivity and excellence through dance.


Duffy Irish Dance Foundation

The purpose of the Foundation is to develop Irish dancers and foster an understanding and appreciation for the art and history of Irish dance in the community.  The Foundation provides cultural education, outreach and support for dancers, their families, and others interested in the art of Irish dance.  The Duffy Irish Dance Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

All of the Foundation's efforts directly support our dancers and their endeavors by defraying costs associated with the sport.  Some of those costs include: apparel stipends, registration for major competitions and first feis, travel stipends, and costs associated with parades and performances.  We encourage you to participate and get involved with these great opportunities.
