What People Have to Say About Us
"My daughter has been taking classes with Christina and Victoria for several years now. They are incredibly warm, caring, talented teachers. My daughter is in a great mood after every class, always feeling positive about her experience and her progress. She really admires her teachers and also feels comfortable and confident in their presence. Couldn't say more about how much we love this program!"
~ KERRI, MOM OF A DANCER ~
"There isn't a more fun, more amazing, more absolutely wonderful dance school in Portland! OIDA keeps their Irish dance classes energizing, engaging, and community-oriented. And the owners/instructors are some of the top dancers in the area."
~ COURTNEY, MOM OF A DANCER ~
"The amazing instructors at OIDA make this program an incredible place to learn, laugh, and dance! Their Irish dance school is unique by offering a non-competitive, performance team dance program. This allows dancers to experience the responsibility of being part of a team while learning the technical skills of Irish dance, but all done in a safe and encouraging environment. We feel so lucky to be involved in OIDA and have recommended it to many friends and family!"
~ MEIKA, MOM OF A DANCER ~
"I just had an hour and a half lesson from my 5 year old who has spent the last 4 days with Christina and Victoria. I have never seen her this intense about anything. It's because of Christina and Victoria, who combine talent, discipline, and skill in teaching with what seems to be an unlimited store of sunny sweetness. I don't have a particular connection to Irish dance, but I feel so lucky to be able to offer my daughter the influence of teachers who bring such joy to their work."
~ KATE, MOM OF A DANCER ~
"This is such a unique, empowering and fun dance program. My daughter has been dancing with Christina and Victoria for four years now and has never wanted to miss a class. The teachers are supportive, focused, caring role models for our girls and seem to strike the perfect balance between discipline and acceptance of children as they are."
~ MANUEL, DAD OF A DANCER ~
"Oregon Irish Dance Academy is fabulous. The teachers are engaging and fun. Kids have a great time and are exhuasted and are clearly learning the dances. The OIDA camps are also fantastic (dancing and really nice crafts)."

"OIDA has provided such a fun, welcoming, and rewarding dance experience for my daughter. The instructors are extremely talented Irish dancers themselves with lots of knowledge to share!"
~ SALLY, MOM OF A DANCER ~
"My daughter is loving hard shoe with Miss Christina. At times my daughter is a little shy and I see the love of Christina’s art when she is so welcoming and patient. Miss Christina uses simple games and stories to build each step and dance. Each child in the class moves at their own pace. Thank you for creating such a fun place to learn!"
~ MELISSA, MOM OF A DANCER ~

~ JEFF, DAD OF A DANCER ~
"My daughter started class about 6 weeks ago, and I’m so happy we signed her up! She always has a lot of fun and Miss Christina is so warm, encouraging, and creative! Also, I’ve never really thought much of my family’s Irish heritage in the past, but with kiddo doing Irish dance we have the opportunity to feel more connected to it."
