    About Us

    Foley Academy provides a positive, encouraging, and inspiring atmosphere for dancers to learn Irish Dance, while defining goals, experiencing growth and success, and establishing long-lasting friendships. Our mission is for our dancers to build confidence, develop teamwork skills, and excel in their mastery of the technique and style that is unique to Irish Dance.

    Why Join Foley Academy?

    Foley Academy is a community of dancers and their families who share in wonderful experiences and opportunities that motivate and encourage our dancers to continuously improve, refine their technique and skills, and perform confidently at shows and competitions.

    Our dancers perform around Reston and Herndon, and dance in many St. Patrick’s Day parades, as well as the popular Reston Holiday Parade and Herndon Homecoming Parade. In addition, we host two recitals each year for all of our dancers to showcase their talents for their friends and family.

    As a certified Irish Dance school, Foley Academy dancers from Beginner to Champion are able to participate in competitions as soloists and together on teams. Dancers compete locally around the east coast, as well as at the Regional and National Championships.

    Irish Dancing is an exciting and challenging activity for both children and adults, and dancers benefit from both a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle. Foley Academy is committed to helping all of our dancers reach their goals. We will be by your side for every step along your journey!
