The McCafferty School of Irish Dance - Founded in 1971

The principal instructor, Judy McCafferty (our Ms. Judy) has taught thousands of children and adults traditional Irish step and group dancing.  In 1997 Ms. Judy began teaching Irish Dancing in Arkansas.  Today, she teaches weekly classes in Fayetteville, Fort Smith and Little Rock.

Traditional Irish Dancing is enjoyed world-wide by dancers of all ages, children and adults.  As dancers advance in skill-level, Irish Dancing becomes a highly aerobic exercise.  Anyone can learn Irish Dancing and everyone enjoys it.  Since 1980, Ms. Judy has been certified as both a teacher and an adjudicator of Irish Dance by The Commission of Irish Dance in Dublin, Ireland.   Ms. Judy’s pupils regularly compete for the North American and World Championships of Irish Dancing.

Classes meet weekly, year-round. 

There are breaks in the schedule for holidays, major competitions and a short vacation every now and then.

The weekly schedule is:

Monday Afternoons, Nights and Tuesday Mornings   Fayetteville

Tuesday Afternoons and Nights                                      Fort Smith

Wednesday Afternoons and Nights                                Little Rock

Thursday Afternoons and Nights                                    Little Rock
