The Big Hearts of Tiny Dancers

Really, whats an Irish Festival without the Dancers?

Well fortunately for us We will not have to ever find out because we have Two Wonderful Schools of Dance that will be showcased here at the Gathering!  The Students will be performing short Sets in between Band Sets on the Lower level main Stage throughout the evening Friday and all day Saturday.  They will also be accompanying some musicians during the main stage performances. Both School Directors, Sophia Wyzgowski and Carolanne Killmer will conduct a beginner Irish Step Workshop in the White Crow Gathering Tent. Both Schools will be found in the community tent so you can find out more information on their Class Schedules! 

Workshops are FREE and for all ages!

The Auburn Glen School of Highland Dance is a Scottish Dance  school located in Bay City, Michigan.  Lessons are offered for girls boys ages 4 through adult.  Both competitive and recreational classes are offered.  The studio offers reasonable rates and discounts for multi-dancer families.


Dancers are taught the basic highland dances, such as the Highland Fling and Sword Dance, as well as the national dances of Scotland.  Dancers are also taught some traditional Ceilidh (party) dances and choreographies.  Dancers are encouraged to compete in the many competitions to be found around the area during the summer, as well as perform with the school in parades and shows.


The mission of the Auburn Glen School of Highland Dance is to promote the art of Scottish Dance in a healthy, supportive, family environment.  We strive for each student to achieve to the best of their own personal ability.
