About Us

The Australian Irish Dance Company was formed in October 1996 in response to public demand for an Australian Irish Dance Company able to provide quality and exhilarating performances along similar lines as the international successful shows “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance”.

The Director of the Company is Ray Ayres, one of Australia’s best know dance choreographers and leading exponent of Irish Dance in Australia. Ray has toured America, Japan and China with the Irish group “The Chieftains”.

The Company brings together a wealth of talent from dance schools within Victoria, all successful in competitions at state, national and international levels.

The Australian Irish Dance Company - Ballarat, is run by Jeremy Evans and Emily French, who also perform with the Melbourne company.

Classes offer a wide skill level from beginner to advanced and cater to all age groups. Classes are fun and friendly and help to improve self discipline, coordination, fitness and also develop and nurture a passion for dance.
