Welcome to the Malone Academy of Irish Dance; a proud member of the San Diego Irish community. We offer classes for children through adults at all levels (beginner through open championship).
At the Malone Academy, we strive for well rounded dance training and, for that reason, we are in residence at San Diego's premier dance studio, the Academy of Performing Arts www.apastudios.com. Students not only have the opportunity to participate in Irish dance, but in other forms of dance.
Along with dance classes, our academy students participate in competitions and performances. Many of our dancers have traveled nationally and internationally to compete in Regional, National, All-Ireland and World Championships. Additionally, they have performed around and outside the United States.
Their recent performance at the Nations of San Diego was described as “Tops in bravura” by arts critic, Valerie Scher. Dance critic Janice Steinberg said of the “exquisitely disciplined dancers”, “When they finished, there was a sigh as if the theater itself had held its breath.”
