Dance Class

Every Friday for January and February children from Junior Infants to 6th class are working under renowned performing arts tutor Kate O' Connor at school.  Kate  has been dancing professionally since the age of 17 with various professional dance companies and large-scale productions.

In 2006, Kate opened Elevation Dance School originally under the name of Kate Redmond Dance. In the 8 years that the school has been in existence Kate has trained thousands of students in private/community classes and in National Schools across Co. Wicklow from the age of 3 1/2 years up to teens. Many of Kate’s students have performed in local Musical Society productions and made the finals for RTE’s first ever production of “Pump Up My Dance” 2012.

Kate could not be more proud of her students and the bonds that have grown within the school. She believes opening students experiences up to as many different aspects of dance and performance including using guest teachers is the only way to build truly versatile young performers and people. At Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa we are honoured and privileged to have such a qualified and talented tutor for our students.  The children eagerly look forward to her classes each week and many also perform with her troupe outside of school hours.
