At the Culkin School, we offer an award winning figures program. Figures or céilí (pronounced KAY lee) dancing brings a team aspect to Irish dancing. Team dancing is a wonderful way to meet other Culkin Irish dancers and their families!
COVID NOTE: Figures dancing was suspended during the height of COVID, and we are just bringing it back. Instruction in figures will happen in classes, and will be encouraged of all dancers attending competitions.
Participating in the figures program can benefit dancers by increasing their stamina and fine tuning all of the basic moves needed in solo dancing.
We offer the opportunity to compete locally, regionally and internationally. Collectively, the school has six 1st place Regional Titles and has achieved several top five placements at the regional level. The school participated in the 2009 World Championships in Philadelphia as well as the World Championships in Boston in 2013 and the 2015 North American Championships in Providence!
