Hi, my name is Catherine Fraser and I have been a competitive and recreational Irish dancer all my life. Coming from an Irish family, it all started when my dad took me along to an Irish dance class in Crewe when I was aged 7. I learnt and picked it up really quickly and I can’t tell you how much I absolutely loved it and still do. I have always had a passion for Irish dancing and I have danced in many local displays and stage shows. I have also competed in Local & Regional competitions including the World Championships in Ireland, as a solo dancer and as part of a Ceili Team.
I started Fraser School of Irish Dance in 1994 following the “Riverdance” phenomenon when I was asked to teach some local adults how to Irish Dance. Since then I have gone on to teach hundreds of dancers most of whom started with me as complete beginners. I teach dancers from the age of 4 years to adult, and up to competition standard in both traditional and contemporary styles of Irish dance. I love teaching anyone who is new to Irish dancing and with beginners it is a great thrill for me to see them progress into an Irish dancer, have fun, become fitter and show more self confidence – maybe enough to perform in public or on stage at one of our many displays. Whether you wish to perform in our shows, to enter class competitions, or just dance for fun and to keep fit, we can accommodate all requirements. We have an incredibly friendly and inclusive reputation with energetic classes, so come along and enjoy the results and make many new friends. If you would like to find out a bit more about learning Irish dance then please get in touch with me.
I hope to see you soon.
