Lesson Details

Dance

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I have spent nearly my entire life deeply embedded in the Irish Dance community. I danced for over 10 years competitively and have siblings that performed in Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. My brother is an adjudicator and former teacher/owner of his own dance school. While I do not have those credentials, I can teach you the basics and connect you to great dancers.

Hi, there! My name is Aisling (Ashlyn) and I can't wait to meet you! I have loved helping my students learn to swim, write better essays, dance, and speak Spanish. I also have 4 years of experience leading parenting workshops and providing behavioral coaching services for little ones with special needs. I am currently attending Columbia University where I am earning my MSW. I also attended the University of California, Riverside and earned a degree in Sociology in 2011. I'm an outgoing and hard-working person that loves helping children. My teaching style is to use creative scaffolding techniques to help the information stick while ensuring the process is fun! I look forward to helping you, or your little ones, reach your goals!
