About your Irish dance teacher
The founder of Canberra Irish Dance, Gabrielle Dinn, started Irish dancing when she was seven years old. In her 17 years as a competitive dancer, Gabrielle was part of an Australian Champion team, achieved an international placing at the North American Irish Dancing Championships in Montreal and numerous state team titles and top three state placings.
Gabrielle’s passion for Irish dance inspired her to start her own dance school so she can share this form of dancing with others. She graduated with her TCRG from CLRG in 2016, receiving the official recognition of her achievements at a graduation ceremony in Ireland.
Dancers will be provided with opportunities to dance competitively as well as to experience the joy of this traditional style of dance. Gabrielle also prides herself on fun and fitness. She has her Certificate III in Fitness and is a certified Zumba, Zumba Kids + Kids Jr, and Strong by Zumba instructor.
Only a few weeks to go before our dancers compete at the Australian Championship being held at Exhibition Park in Canberra, 1-6 October. This will be the first time our dancers have competed at an Australian Championship.
