Kildare Academy of Irish Dance, with its primary studio in Bay Shore, New York, is owned by Nicole Dimone, TCRG. A competitive Irish dancer since age six, Dimone received her teaching certification from An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha in Dublin in 2006. Among the intense and fun instruction in Bay Shore and at two other locations on Long Island in Center Moriches and Southhampton, March is the time to share their knowledge and skill with others in a month-long celebration of Irish culture.

Kildare Academy dancers will perform more than 30 shows on Long Island this month for businesses and events, earning much needed funds to attend competitions; they also entertain at no charge for a lot of not-for-profit organizations including nursing homes. Kildare Irish dancers will march in the Bay Shore, Center Moriches and Hampton Bays parades as well to honor St. Patrick's Day.
