From beginner to championship level, solo dancing to ceili (team) dancing, the Lavin-Cassidy School of Irish Dancing has inspired appreciation for the art of Irish Dance for more than 25 years. Because our focus is quality, not quantity, our class sizes allow for focused, individualized instruction by our staff of seven instructors, of which four are certified by Aun commission.
The Lavin-Cassidy studio, in Worth, Illinois, is a state-of-the-art facility that features floating dance floors like those used by professional dance companies. Additional classes are offered in Oak Forest.
Lavin-Cassidy holds numerous first place titles in both Midwest and National Championships, as well as first place at the 2012 All-Ireland Championships. Most recently, in 2013, our senior Girl’s Under 15 Ceili placed Second at the World Championships held in Boston. Our teams placed 1st in all seven categories entered in the 2013 Midwest Regional Oireachtas. In addition to competitive solo and team dancing, we offer our students the opportunity to participate in a variety of show performances throughout the Chicago area. And just recently our own Tadhg Spillane placed 1st in the world in the recent 12-13 World Championships in London!!! We are so proud of him and all our hard-working students!!
