Reels in the Rockies

Alberta, Canada

July 26th-31st


Fee: $1220 Canadian + GST includes housing, meals, and all activities. Note due to exchange rates, this is a BIG savings for dancers in other parts of the world.

Location: Goldeye Centre – Nordegg, Alberta, Canada
Ages: 8-18

Level: Open to all levels from beginner thru Open Champion. Dancers must have some experience in both hard and soft shoe dancing. Dancers do not need to be enrolled in a dance school to attend.


The Program: Imagine attending a summer camp with stunning views of the Canadian Rockies? That can be YOU in the summer of 2020! Reels in the Rockies offers a perfect mix of Irish dance classes and the traditional summer camp experience. Dancers rotate between dance and outdoor activities such as canoeing, archery, climbing wall, zipline and more. 

A typical day begin with dance warm-ups and then onto a dance class with one of the amazing instructors including Joanne Kavanagh of Holly & Kavanagh, Dervla McGee from the McGee School and Scott Doherty- Star of Rockin’ Road to Dublin. After dance class, campers head to an outdoor activity such as hiking or high ropes. During the afternoon dancers rotate through another dance class and an outdoor activity. And, in the evening participants choose between a variety of activities including an additional dance class or a non-dance activity. The camp even offers swimming on the camp’s exclusive lake. This is the picture-perfect location for making new friends and memories and for dancers who love the outdoors, this is an incredible opportunity at a bargain price.

Level: Dancers must apply – please visit Riverdance’s Summer School website for application information. Note dancers must be Prelim or Open Champion level to apply.


The Program: It’s most dancer’s dream to someday dance with Riverdance. Over the course of first five years running this program in Dublin, and the past three years in Boston, there have been over 44 dancers that have come to the summer school and went on to either tour with the show, perform in flying squad events or dance in the show on the Gaiety stage. With the addition of Columbus, Ohio, more dancers than ever before will have the chance to learn Riverdance’s iconic choreography and be mentored by some of the world’s biggest dance stars!

It is important to note that not everyone who applies is accepted. Riverdance sees this as a great platform for talented dancers and dancers who are determined to reach their potential. They want to help dancers progress and that’s why they will consider dancers at either the Prelim or Open Champ level.

Taught by the Riverdance professional dancers, the participants of the six-day summer school will learn the iconic choreography from the show. They train in all aspects of being a professional dancer. Students aged 18 and older can use this week as an audition for the show. As well as all the dancing and performance, the program has a strong emphasis on nutrition, mind-set, strength and conditioning, leadership, teamwork, rest and recovery and general personal management. This training is sure to make a difference in every dancer’s life.

The finale of each school week is a fully staged rehearsed performance of Riverdance featuring all the students in front of an audience. While most of each day will be spent dancing, there will also be talks given by special guest speakers that will provide students insight into the creative and business side of the industry. Riverdance also partners with world class educational institutions including Dublin City University, Boston University, and Otterbien University in Westerville, Ohio to provide a safe and secure location for dancers.
