Scoil Rince Tir an Oir
Scoil Rince Tir an Oir is a small and friendly dancing school based in the Belconnen area. Scoil Rince Tir an Oir is one of the oldest schools in Canberra, originally called the Trenholme School.
Kathryn Trenholme is the principal teacher. She began dancing at the age of 9 and has been involved in Irish Dancing since then. Stephanie Fereday danced with Tir an Oir for over 20 years before gaining her teaching qualification at the end of 2018 and joining Kathryn as a teacher.
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.
