The Butler-Fearon-O’Connor School of Irish Dance is one of the top Irish dance schools in the world. Founded in 2003 as a result of a merge between the world-famous Butler-Fearon School of Canada and California, and the O’Connor-Kennedy School in California, it has quickly become the premier school in the western US and in eastern Canada, as well as internationally. The directors of the school are Rose Fearon, ADCRG, Vincent O’Connor, ADCRG and Kathleen O’Connor, ADCRG.
Students in the Butler-Fearon-O’Connor School have won numerous titles, including North American, Great Britain, All-Scotland, All-Ireland, and World Champion. Several senior dancers with the school have toured with or are currently touring with shows such as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
The school was named the No.1 dance school in North America by Irish Dancing and Culture Magazine for 2005.
In the US, the school has locations throughout Southern California and in Northern California. In Ontario, Canada, classes are located throughout the greater Toronto area, including Brampton and Georgetown, and London.
Classes are offered for all levels of dancers, from very beginner to championship. We offer a variety of instruction from certified teachers in all locations, and strive to make each child the very best Irish dancer that they can be.
We invite you join our school today, and become a champion of tomorrow.
Our goal at the Butler-Fearon-O'Connor School is to teach Irish dance to the best of your child's ability, and most importantly to make it a wonderful and memorable experience.
We want you to enjoy coming to classes, going to competitions and giving performances. The skills taught in Irish dance go beyond dance skills and have proven to be invaluable many years later to so many people.
We believe that one of our greatest assets is the diversity of our teaching staff. Although each teacher is the primary instructor in their own studios, all teachers travel among the various locations to teach all of the students in the school.
Bringing a different perspective and approach to the students, each teacher relies on their own strengths to further develop the abilities and talents of the dancers.
With relatively small class sizes, students receive personal attention from the teachers each class, and focus on proper form and technique, as well as stamina, flexibility and presentation.
