Clann Na Cara, Gaelic for "A Family of Friends" is an accredited Irish dancing school founded in 2006 by Mary Kate Conrad (Lachut), Katie Cunningham, Jennifer Mammoliti (DiPasquale) and Erin Mansour (Holzerland) all whom danced together for years and competed at the World level.
At Clann Na Cara dancers can compete and perform, or simply attend weekly class for fun and exercise as the child's desire to excel steers them!
Opportunities to Excel
While it is 100% up to each dancer and family, dancers at Clann Na Cara are encouraged to pursue competitive opportunities beyond attending weekly classes.
We believe dancing for enjoyment as well as competitively allows dancers to showcase their talents and grow in ability and self-confidence.
