Welcome

#trainingchampions

If someone sees themselves as a world champion, we believe in making that vision a reality. We’ll do absolutely everything in our power to make your child the best dancer possible. We feel that every person has unbelievable talent just waiting to be discovered. We promise to not only discover these gifts but also to develop them with consistent hard work.

Founded in 2015, Costello Irish Dance is an up-and-coming school registered with The Irish Dancing Commission (CLRG) in Ireland, the North American Feis Commission (NAFC), and the Irish Dance Teachers Association of Canada – Eastern Region (IDTACE). The first of its kind in Vaudreuil-Soulanges QC, Costello Irish Dance prides itself on the custom programs that were created to respond to the needs of an Irish dancer in today’s world.

We fully accept our responsibility as leaders of Irish dance in the area. It’s for this reason that we keep our class sizes small with a maximum of 6 dancers registered in Pre-Bronze and 10 dancers in Bronze, Silver, and Adult. By restricting class size, we believe that Irish dance can be taught in a tailored way to fit the individual needs of each dancer. This allows each dancer to build their confidence, discover who they are, and cultivate their own authenticity so that they can ultimately give back in service of others in their community.

From the time an individual begins to learn Irish dance right up until their last competition, the focus in our school is on drilling and refining basic technique to create a strong foundation in the sport. The discipline that evolves throughout an Irish dancer’s career becomes a work ethic that influences all aspects of their life.

Instructors

 

Casey Costello, TCRG and Champion Coach

Casey began his dance career over two decades ago with the Bernadette Short School of Irish Dancing. His passion for the sport brought him many successes, both within Irish dance and his own personal life. In solos, he won four Eastern Canadian Championships titles, placed 3rd in North America, and finished 8th in the World. In teams, he led his team to win eight Eastern Canadian Championships titles and to place 3rd at both the North American and World Championships.

From dance, he learned the importance of hard work, growth and development. Before starting an Irish dance school, he finished his university education and earned a Master of Science in Carbohydrate Chemistry. He could never have done this without the hard work, perseverance, and growth that he learned from Irish dance.

Casey founded Costello Irish Dance in September 2015 to share his passion with the next generation of competitors in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges area. By combining his creative training in dance, his formal education in science, and his respect for youthful ambition, Casey creates a well-rounded experience for every dancer in the school.

 

Liandra Doonan, Coach-In-Training

Liandra joins Costello Irish Dance with 19 years of Irish dance experience. Starting at the age of 5 in the Marie-Claude Rousseau School of Irish Dance and transferring to the Bernadette Short School of Irish Dancing at 13, Liandra realized that dance wasn’t just an extracurricular activity but a place where she could call home.

With a ton of hard work and determination, Liandra went on to win the Eastern Canadian Championships twice, to place 15th in North America, and to finish 21st in the World. With A Bachelor of Science majoring in Physiology, Liandra juggled school, part-time work, and dance to ultimately learn the true value of hard work and dedication. She feels that nothing’s more rewarding than seeing the work translated into an amazing performance on stage.

Dance became her life and after retiring from competition, she realized she couldn’t be without it. She’s excited to have joined Costello Irish Dance so that she can help dancers reap the benefit of a life in this awesome sport!
