Teagascóir Coimisiún Le Rinci Gaelacha, (TCRG) the "teacher" qualification certifies dancers to teach students in both Ceili and solo dancing and allow them to compete at local, regional and national levels.
A New Beginning
When our family relocated to Tallahassee with two competitive Irish dancers in tow, the one thing we were missing was an Irish Dance school. In order to compete, dancers must be under the training of a professional teacher who has been certified by An Coimisiún le Rincí, a TCRG.
With no TCRGs in Tallahassee, our dancers would not be able to continue to compete and would have to leave their feis friends behind. Our feis friends are the best friends and we couldn't imagine our family without Irish Dance. So... we built and opened an Irish Dance studio and affiliated ourselves with TCRG instructors with extensive teaching, performance and competition experience.
Irish Dance Tallahassee students are welcome to take classes simply for the love of the art, join our Performance Troupe on stage and /or give competition a try.
From our family to yours, Slainte!
