NRM Irish dance mission is to instil and promote a great love of Irish dance, inspire self-belief, confidence, discipline and share our wonderful Irish culture. We provide a solid technical foundation for the developing dancer while concentrating on the basic traditions and rhythms.
Dance develops physical, emotional, and creative aspirations. Through physical activity, we aim to keep the body and the mind healthy. Dance develops social skills and these skills naturally forge friendships and connections with those that we love to share our joy of dance with.
Dancing is a wonderful way to keep fit for people of all ages, shapes and sizes. It has a wide range of physical and emotional benefits including cardiovascular exercise for heart and lungs, building muscle strength, endurance and motor fitness. While children are developing physically, dance helps them to remain connected with themselves, being aware of their strengths and abilities and helping them to overcome weakness. As the dancer develops into an adolescent and adult, dance continues to help mould and frame their discipline, even if just dancing for fun- dance knows no age!
