Kilkenny Academy of Dance, formally The Forristal School of Dance has been successfully running since 1989. The school is known in Kilkenny for its combination of high standards and nurturing environments. In 2016, Gemma Grant and Finn Power took over ownership of the school from Sinead Keaskin.Gemma and Finn both grew up in this school as children so it is safe to say that both of their hearts are involved in every aspect of the running of the school.
At Kilkenny Academy of Dance, our team is made up of teachers who focus on nurturing the ability of the students through fun and learning. Our teachers put emphasis on furthering their qualifications and attending courses regularly to improve their craft. We believe that the bond created by our team of teachers is an integral part of running successful and safe classes for our students and their development.
