ABOUT US

The River City School of Irish Dance is one of Saskatoon's longest running Irish Dance schools, officially opening its doors in 1996. At River City, it is our mission to promote awareness, understanding and love of Irish Dance and Irish culture throughout the local community. We believe so strongly in the local promotion of Irish Dance in that we worked hard to help host the 2019 Western Canadian Regional Oireachtas in Saskatoon, bringing this prestigious qualifying competition for the North American and World Irish Dance Championships to Saskatchewan for the first time in history.

In the studio, we strive to provide world-class instruction and resources for our dance students to ensure that they have the tools to achieve their goals, whether that be a qualification for the World Irish Dance Championships or 1st Place at a local Feis, we are here to support all dancers equally. Dancers at River City will receive instruction from certified Irish Dance Teachers (TCRG) at every class who have the knowledge and experience to ensure that dancers are receiving consistent and quality instruction of Irish Dance.

The River City Irish Dance Parents Association is a non-profit entity dedicated to the development of River City dancers through fundraising initiatives and event organization and it has been our pleasure to work closely with Nicole and Katie over the years in support of their school.  Both teachers are talented and certified Irish dance instructors dedicated to teaching Irish dance and promoting Irish culture in a fun, rewarding and inclusive environment.  River City gives dancers an opportunity to build character and confidence through a variety of dance instruction including health, nutrition and life skills.  This provides an excellent opportunity for dancers to achieve their highest potential resulting in many of the River City dancers qualifying for national and international competitions.  The Parents Association highly encourages anyone with interest to reach out and contact the school for further information.
