The Culkin School is busy throughout the year bringing traditional Irish dance to the Washington, D.C., area.  We have performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Strathmore, the Irish Embassy Residence, Wolf Trap National Park and Black Rock Center for the Arts. The Culkin School dancers have also performed with many internationally renowned Irish musicians, including the Chieftains, Cherish the Ladies, Eileen Ivers, Lúnasa and Natalie MacMaster.  And of course we have participated in many local festivals, including the Potomac Celtic Festival, the Maryland Renaissance Festival and the Washington Irish Festival.
