FULL-TIME YEARLY PROGRAM
At the Culkin School, we offer several options for classes during the course of the year. Our classes start in mid-September and goes through mid-June in 10-14 week segments. Beginner classes are offered once a week and are 45 minutes long. If your dancer is interested in joining our Irish Dance dance program, we welcome you!
The Culkin School also offers a series of summer camps at Glen Echo Park. Our summer sessions start in July and are offered in one-week sessions through early August. We offer camps for beginners and current Culkin dancers. You can find a full description for all of our Summer Camp offerings by clicking here!
If you are interested in trying Irish dance as an adult, the Culkin School has a comprehensive adult program at Glen Echo Park. Adults can sign up for four different sessions starting in September, December, February and April! You can begin at the start of any session. From Beginners to those who may have danced as children, there is an adult track for you! If you’re interested in joining our award winning Adult Program, email us at email@example.com
The Culkin School offers an award winning céilí (pronounced kaylee) program! Figures brings a team aspect to Irish dancing! Dances are performed in groups of two or more dancers and require a different skill set than solo dancing! Our teams have competed locally, regionally and internationally! If your dancer is interested in meeting other Culkin dancers and families as well as improving their basics, the figures program is for them! We suspended our Figures Program due to COVID but look forward to bringing it back soon!
