In the spring of 2006, the Villanova Irish Dance Team was founded by a small group of dedicated dancers. The entirely student-run organization is a close-knit group of students who enjoy sharing their long-standing love for Irish dance, music, and culture with the entire Villanovan community.
Members attend weekly rehearsals in St. Mary’s Hall to perfect dances, work on drills, and keep up with competition sets. The group’s presence on campus continues to grow with many performances, including Parent’s Weekend, Homecoming Weekend, and multiple basketball games.
In the fall of 2013, the team established its first Intercollegiate Irish Dance Festival, which invites colleges across the country and audiences of approximately 500 attendees to celebrate traditional Irish dance with a modern flare.
