Irish Dancers Information

  • UNCW Irish Dance Club seeks to enrich the diverse culture in the UNCW and Wilmington communities by providing an outlet for the appreciation and exploration of Irish culture through Irish dance.
    Our club “Sláinte”(pronounced “slan-cha”) meaning cheers in Gaelic also seeks to promote physical fitness through lessons and performances both for those with and without Irish dance experience.”
