"Dance first. Think later."


The Victoria School of Irish Dance was established by founder, Alison Paladini, T.C.R.G. After the release of the popular shows Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, Alison responded to the demand in interest for Irish Dance classes by beginning small classes in recreational facilities. Since then, the Victoria School of Irish dance has now expanded to offer classes in Sidney, Victoria, Westshore, Esquimalt and Nanaimo.
