O'Shea Irish Dance
Athleticism & Artistry
Your source for world-class Irish dance classes, solo and team competition, and professional Irish dance and music shows in Saint Paul.
O'Shea Irish Dance is led by director Cormac O'Sé T.C.R.G., original cast member of Riverdance & native of Dublin, Ireland. Cormac comes from a deep pedigree with the legendary Scoil Rince Uí Shé of Dublin, Ireland, taught by his parents for the last 48 years. Cormac toured for six years with Riverdance, performing over 2000 performances, across four continents to over two million people. He can be seen in the original film, Riverdance, The Show and four other film productions.
Established in 2005, OID provides Irish dance classes and training for the demanding and technical art form of traditional and competitive Irish Step dance where dancers train as artists, musicians, and athletes. Teaching ages three to adult, OID instructors inform the whole dancer to train a healthy body in strength, flexibility, and fitness as well as a healthy mind in confidence, discipline, and performance.
Cormac is a T.C.R.G. (certified instructor with An Coimisiún Le Rinci Gaelacha) qualified instructor which is required for a school's students to compete in Irish dance.
OID's Minnesota dancers have achieved 9 Regional Solo Championship titles, 2 Regional Ceili Titles, 4 National Championship Titles and 6 top-ten placements in the World Championships bringing the only 2 world globes home to the state.
