Cork School of Dance is a thriving, experienced and exciting dance school based in Firkin Crane, the home of dance in Cork, in the heart of the historical Shandon Quarter of Cork City.

Established in 2009 by, Sinéad Murphy, F.I.S.T.D., Imperial Ballet Examiner, RADTC, ALCM , the school provides a nurturing environment for its students to learn the disciplines of a variety of dance genres with fully qualified and internationally renowned Guest teachers. We are a school that constantly evolves according to current trends and a school that has a future for your child. Children are accepted from the age of 3 years.
