Non-Competitive Irish Dancing for Ages 3 & Up



- THE place for Irish Dancing in Oregon -

At OIDA, we love Irish dancing -- and it shows! Our goal is to build self-esteem and confidence through the wonderful sport and art of Irish dancing. We want our students to leave each class feeling successful and excited for next time. Through example, we show our students how to see the good in every experience, while recognizing, valuing, and being excited about the fact that there is always room for improvement. We teach our students to enjoy the journey and the hard work that gets them somewhere, and we encourage our students to be creative, ask questions, and be the best that they can be!


Youth Classes

We offer youth classes for ages 3 and up. Our program is completely non-competitive and curriculum-based. We offer classes 6 days a week all year. Join anytime!


Adult Dancing

Never Irish danced before? Danced before, but it's been ages? We're lucky that Portland has so many options. Check out some helpful info about the many local options for adults wanting to Irish dance!


Day Camps

During summer, we hold uniquely awesome Irish Dance Camps for kids ages 5-10! They're truly magical and a great way for kids to try Irish dancing!
