Seven years ago this week I officially started the Sheeaun Academy. What?! So hard to believe it’s been that long since I quit my job, moved home with my parents, and began this adventure.

The Sheeaun Academy of Irish Dance cultivates beautiful dancers, fosters creativity, rewards hard work and places a high value on good sportsmanship within and beyond the school. Students are not merely corralled into subgroups based on age and level. The talented and accomplished teachers treat the students as individuals and determine the best way to work with each one. Thank you Sheeaun!

When we were first introduced to Moira and Sheeaun Academy, my daughter Anna was smitten. At age 5, she was fiercely determined to "dance like THAT!" It began a happy journey (6 years and counting) that shaped Anna in many positive ways. She has developed strength and confidence as well as friends who feel like family. Moira's team of teachers inspire each student and the school performances reflect this awesome relationship!

Sheeaun Academy of Irish Dance has provided my daughter Piper with countless opportunities to believe in her abilities and to continually strive to reach new goals with poise and dedicated practice. To not dwell on the successes or hard lessons learned, but to be humble...I know that when she is older, many of her most fond memories of her childhood will have Sheeaun in them. Along with these amazing opportunities, Moira has also instilled in Piper that her joy for her teammates and her bond with them helps make Sheeaun Academy a true family...Irish Dance is more than just a sport. It is a form of expression, a talent, and creates immeasurable bonds impossible to duplicate.
