Cleary Irish Dance

In 1988, Margaret Cleary ADCRG introduced Irish Dance classes for adults at St. Ambrose Parish Hall in West Hollywood. The adult group were aptly known as The St. Ambrose Ceili Dancers and grew to be a reputable Irish organization within the Southern California community. They have attained five National titles for ceili dancing. In 1993, Margaret added classes for children. Classes are now offered for students of all ages and levels. They study the traditional art form of Irish dance (reels, jigs and hornpipes) in both soft and hard shoes.

They perform regularly at events throughout the Southland and have appeared many times on local and national television as well as Irish TV (RTE). They have featured in the Disney video “Doing the Jig with Tig”. Members of the group have performed with the Chieftains, the Irish Rovers, Cherish the Ladies, Solas and other notable Irish entertainers; at the Hollywood Bowl with the Disney Young Symphony Orchestra, Descanso Gardens with the Pasadena Pops and in Las Vegas.

Cleary Irish Dance has successfully established it’s presence in competitions at the regional and national level. Members of the group qualify every year to represent the Western U.S. region at the World Championships held annually at Easter in Ireland. Cleary Irish Dance is proud to perpetuate the traditions and culture of Ireland in Los Angeles.
