The Culkin School has performance opportunities throughout the year. The school performs at local schools, assisted living facilities, churches, weddings, embassies, pubs, and have even performed at Wolftrap, Strathmore and The Kennedy Center. Participating in performances is a great way to get more involved in the Culkin community and meet other dancers. Performing helps dancers gain confidence while having fun!

Culkin performing with The Chieftains

We book many different types of shows. Some clients may request a teaching element as part of the program and others may just want to see younger dancers. Venue types and sizes vary and some shows are relaxed while others require a level of professionalism. More high profile shows are reserved for our championship level dancers, who have more experience performing. We have all types of performance opportunities that are appropriate for all of our dancers.  Show information and invitations will go out via the Yahoo! Group and will also be listed on the website. Each show will list the level of dancers invited to participate.


  • The Culkin School sends out weekly Culkin Notes emails during St Patrick’s Day season to inform dancers about upcoming shows.
  • A Google Forms with performance information will be included in these emails.
