Welcome to the
McBride School of Irish Dance
The McBride School of Irish Dance is committed to providing quality Irish Dance instruction, while providing a safe, supportive and positive learning environment that lends itself to developing well-rounded and confident dancers. Our goals for students in the McBride School are to: (1) Have Fun, (2) Make Friends, (3) Enjoy Dancing, (4) Build Confidence, (5) Learn Teamwork and (6) Work Hard!
Whether for competition or recreational dancing, we offer an Irish Dance program that develops each Dancer to their full potential while training in this intricate and athletic dance form. The McBride School offers beginner through championship level classes for all ages (including adults in select locations). New students are always welcomed! Opportunities are available for all McBride Dancers to participate in competition and performances.
The McBride School, which was founded in 1967 under the direction of Ann McBride, A.D.C.R.G., is one of the largest Irish Dance Schools in Northern California, and has been providing quality Irish Dance instruction in the San Francisco Bay Area for 45 years. The McBride School is accredited and registered with An Coimisiun Le Rince Gaelacha, Dublin Ireland (CLRG - the Irish Dance Commission), and the Irish Dance Teachers Association of North America (IDTANA), Western U.S. Region.
With their combined experience and passion for teaching, Ann McBride and Eileen McBride-Parker, T.C.R.G., take great pride in passing their love for Irish Dance and Culture to their Dancers.
No matter whether you choose to dance competitively or for recreation and exercise, Irish Dancing is a very rewarding activity that teaches discipline, develops character, instills dedication and builds confidence, all while making lasting friendships and memories. We invite you to join us!
