Niall O'Leary School of Irish Dance

Welcome to the Niall O'Leary School of Dance! Our location on the Mississippi Gulf Coast is one of many Niall O’Leary Schools across the United States and Mexico. 

We offer classes for all ages and levels, including adults. In addition to teaching Irish dance steps, technique, and posture, we focus on building a strong dance foundation which includes strengthening, injury prevention, stretching, and musicality. We also coach dancers in mindset, professional behavior, and teamwork, to produce well-rounded dancers.

Our smaller class sizes allow for individual instruction for each student and enough room to learn and practice this unique and cultural dance style. We foster a team-like environment filled with support, constructive criticism, accountability, and kindness.


Classes are taught by champion dancer and location director, Amy Bowman and student instructor, Ella Lansford.
