Welcome to the new AIDA NSW Branch Website
During this strange time in Irish dancing as an example, for the first time in 75 years what do you do on a Saturday morning when you can’t go to dancing?
Irish Dancing has been the most enjoyable time in my life and with COVID19 I miss all my friends. How many of you feel like this?
No doubt it will pass so don’t despair, there is no place in the world as wonderful as an irish dancing
class with all your lifelong friends.
Keep smiling and enjoy life.
Your friend in Irish dancing

Bullying and unkindness, whether physical or emotional, are entirely unacceptable at any dance school. It conflicts sharply with the school’s principles and will always be treated seriously.


Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, which intentionally hurts another individual or group, either physically or emotionally.


Bullying can take many forms (including cyber-bullying via text messages or the internet).


If you feel that you are being bullied, or are concerned about bullying, please contact your teacher immediately.
