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

Located in Boise, IRISH DANCE IDAHO continues its mission to create a stellar performing experience, not only for the IDI dancers, but for the many audiences that follow them.  Under the direction of Rebecca Ingram TCRE, and Assistant Heidi Grigg, dancers are taught and drilled on correct, difficult technique required for traditional and Show-style Irish Step 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 and often more, (as the IDI dancers can tailor make their experience to fit their goals), the IDI dancers work hard to achieve proper technique, coordination, and muscle memory for incredibly difficult dances, while applying their skills and talents to hundreds of performances year around.

The IDI Dancers showcase their talents at Festivals, Highland Games, Markets, Fine Arts Events, Renaissance Faires, Community, Corporate, and Cultural Events, Schools, Retirement Centers, Weddings, Private Parties, and Much, Much More!

 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

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,
