Clann Na Cara is Gaelic for "A Family of Friends". We hope each and every family that enters our doors leaves feeling like a part of the CNC family.


We like to think we have a relaxed atmosphere where kids can decide to compete and perform, or simply attend weekly class for fun and exercise. Either way we hope dancers have a fun and enjoyable experience with Irish dancing.

Besides attending weekly classes, other dance opportunities include camps, competitions, parades and performances around the St. Patrick's Day season.
