Our Mission

“Failte” (“Welcome”) from the Lincoln Irish Dancers! Our mission is “to heighten awareness and appreciation of traditional Irish dance, and to celebrate Irish culture” here in Lincoln, Nebraska and surrounding areas. Our group began in March of 1997. We now offer a variety of activities such as holding Irish social dance classes from fall through spring in 5-week sessions; performing locally and regionally throughout the year; hosting a public ceili and workshops; facilitating periodic trips, e.g., to Ireland; and a number of member-only social events.

April 6, 2020, Final Class Session of the 2019-2020 Season is CANCELLED

The Lincoln Irish Dancers final session of Step and Irish Social (Ceili) classes for the 2019-2020 season is cancelled.  Everyone please keep themselves and others safe by following the guidelines put forth for the State of Nebraska, City of Lincoln, and county where you live.  Join Lincoln Irish Dancers Board of Directors and Class Instructor, Laura Nettland, in staying healthy and positive as we look forward to next fall when our classes begin again!

Classes for the 2020-2021 Season will begin September 14, 2020
We are looking forward with hope and optimism to the 2020- 2021 Lincoln Irish Dancers class and performance season beginning September 14, 2020.  Keep an eye on www.lincolnirishdancers.org for ever-changing inspiring sayings and graphics.  In the meantime, follow Lincoln Irish Dancers on Facebook for inspiration, updates, videos, announcements, and more. Post your comments on what you like best and how you are keeping up with Irish culture and dance during this long ‘break’ from our normal lives.
