About Scoil Rince Tir an Oir



Scoil Rince Tir an Oir is a small and friendly dancing school based in the Belconnen area.  Kathryn Trenholme is the principal teacher.  She began dancing at the age of 9 and has been involved in Irish Dancing since then.  Scoil Rince Tir an Oir is one of the oldest schools in Canberra, originally called the Trenholme School.


At Tir an Oir, all ages and abilities are encouraged to strive for their individual goals in a fun and friendly environment.  Dancers work together and encourage each other.  Dancers have had success at local, interstate, national and international competitions and some have gone on to be teachers and adjudicators.  They are encouraged to choose the right competitive level for themselves, whether that be at the top end or only attending the occasional feis.
