Irish Dance Idaho

 Irish Dance Idaho is celebrating 12 years in the Treasure Valley!!


Thank you Treasure Valley and Beyond for all your support and so many wonderful memories! We are looking forward to making many more!

IRISH DANCE IDAHO remains among the finest Irish Dance performing troupes in the Northwestern United States.  

Located in Boise, IRISH DANCE IDAHO continues its mission to create performing experiences, not only for the IDI dancers, but for the many audiences that follow them.  Under the direction of Rebecca Ingram TCRE, and Assistants, Heidi Grigg, and Spencer Ingram, dancers are taught and drilled on correct, difficult technique required for traditional and Show-style Irish Step, specifically in the Muenster tradition.  The talented IDI dancers continue to delight audiences throughout the Northwest with their rhythmic high energy performances.

IRISH DANCE IDAHO enjoys freedom to express with exclusive traditional and show-style choreography created specifically for the IDI Dancers.  They also learn, practice, and perform traditional ceili or party dances originating hundreds of years ago in Ireland.  With at least weekly classes, the IDI dancers work hard to achieve proper technique, coordination, and muscle memory for incredibly difficult moves, while sharing their skills and talents with appreciative audiences year around.

 IRISH DANCE IDAHO has a great community of wonderfully supportive parents and dance families.  IDI dancers commute to weekly classes from Star, Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell,  Mountain Home, and Emmett!

Comments from a few of our friends:

Irish Dance Idaho is one of the most talented entertainment groups in the Northwest!  I have worked with Shawna and Chris Ingram for the last seven years and I always enjoy working with all the dancers.  Their performances are always “high energy” and the dancers always look like they are having fun.  I recommend attending one of their concerts/performances for a great evening out for the entire family.”

James Brown - Event Coordinator, Nampa Civic Center, 2012

Irish Dance Idaho is filled with energy, excitement, and a wonderful artistic flair that is fun for all ages to enjoy.  They represent some of the finest folk artists in Idaho.  Every time they perform at the Nampa Civic Center they are a huge highlight.”
Bill Stephan - Previous Director of the Nampa Civic Center

“You Guys Rock!  We very much appreciate the sounds, sights, and liveliness you have brought to census events like the Capitol Event.  You brighten up a rainy day, stop traffic and gather onlookers who can’t help but smile at watching you do what you do!  Thank you!”

The Census Bureau Partnership Team

 We were so very grateful that Irish Dance

Idaho shared the beautiful dances with all of us. Everyone was amazed

at the skill, joy, and beauty all your dancers portrayed. You added so

much fun to our celebration. 

Kind regards,

Lauri Thompson ELL Assistant, Desert Sage Elementary

If you have not joined yet you will want to because it is like a big huge family!!!!! And you will not regret this!!!! This is the best place to Irish dance because we don't wear the big wigs and huge dress, we do wear dresses which is not big and boys will wear a black shirt, pants, and tie.
