Traditional & Contemporary Irish dance lessons, for all ages.

Teaching Irish dance as an expressive art, enhanced through related dance activities, fitness, flexibility and stage presence.
We like to think outside the box with our unique and cutting-edge Irish dance choreography and fitness techniques.
We're a ‘family’ of Irish dancers who all share a special bond - the love of competitive Irish dance.
Our Irish dancing lessons are taught by former British & World Champion Irish dancer famed for her stunning dance choreography.
At our Irish dance classes we teach our students competitive Irish dancing. We are a school that competes at a variety of Irish dance organisations under the 'Open Platform' umbrella, our students learn much more than how to compete.
They learn hard work, dedication, perseverance and gain life long friendships. Each class provides an energetic and nurturing environment that I students thrive in. Our 'World Class' instructor will teach you or your child correct form and technique as well as many other life skills far beyond Irish dancing.
Our Irish dance lessons are taught by former British & World Champion Irish dancer to her unique, high speed and super clean Irish dancing choreography with perfect rhythm and stunning stage presence.
At Bright Irish Dance we nurture and build champions by doing things a little differently. We like to think outside the box and our formula is successful. If your Irish dance lessons are boring or you think you are dancing below your potential and you live in Edinburgh, Midlothian, Westlothian or Fife then we need to talk.
We provide beginner Irish dance lessons for all ages and abilities from 3 years and over, covering a mixture of traditional and modern styles of Irish dancing using our unique and state-of-the-art Irish dance techniques. From toddlers (3+) to teens and from never dancing a step to beginner Irish dancers with a rudimentary understanding our instructors create a safe but fun environment for Irish dancing in Scotland.
If you are as passionate about Irish Dance and Irish culture as we are, then you have reached the right place! Our beginner Irish dance classes are open to both ‘recreational’ dancers not wishing to attend competitions and those seeking to compete at Irish dance competitions throughout Scotland (and further afield) of all abilities and all levels. Our students are taught by our team of highly motivated instructors with over thirty years experience between them and have competed and won numerous titles in local, regional and national competitions including our very own World Champion Irish dancer.
All our beginner students will be taught four light Irish dances first – Reel, Light Jig, Single Jig and Slip Jig. Once they can perform all these dances to a good standard they will then move on to Advanced dances – Heavy Jig, Hornpipe and their first ‘Traditional Set Dance’ – Saint Patricks Day. All these advanced dances will be performed in Hard Shoes (also known as ‘Heavies’).
Here at Bright Irish Dance we have a passion for the art of Irish dance and for helping others discover their inner Irish dancer. Are you ready to get up and move? Contact our today to learn more about our beginner Irish dance lessons and how to become one of our team members.
Our competitive Irish dance lessons are held at most of our school venues usually at the end of our beginner Irish dance classes. The lessons consist of competitive and modern Irish dance choreography and are designed to produce a winning combination of speed, grace and precision. Our modern choreography, and signature Bright Irish Dance steps creates dancers who Smile, Sparkle & Shine and DANCE their way to the top of the podium.
We hope to work with passionate Irish dancers who help encourage and elevate the dancers around them. We are all at different points along the road to the top of the podium and a strong sense of commitment is the quality that matters to us far more than competitive achievements and titles at a previous Irish dance school. We want to mould our dancers to our way of dancing, the look, the athleticism and the dynamic Irish dancing that sets us apart.
Bright Irish Dance is a world class Irish dancing and physical fitness training school specifically aimed at elite competitive Irish dancers wishing to compete at the highest level across Open Platform Irish dance organisations.
Do you want to take your Irish dancing to the next level with our cutting-edge and unique Irish dance lessons? As an elite competitive Irish dancing school we focus all our attention on attaining a podium position in the competitions we attend. By shifting the focus of our Irish dancers on to results and performance (with a little sprinkle of “showmanship”) our dancers regularly exceed their own expectations and literally dance their way to the top.
