Welcome to Janelle's School of Irish Dance!

In IRISH DANCE, our goal & commitment is:

  • to provide instruction to students committed to the development of the disciplines and enjoyment of Irish dance
  • to help young people discover and develop skills and abilities, to build individual confidence and give students support and encouragement in their personal growth
  • to uphold/teach a standard of modesty and wholesomeness throughout - in manner, conduct, atmosphere, instruction, and in the dance itself

    Hello! My name is Lilah Barneson. I am 16 years old and have been dancing with Janelle’s School of Irish Dance for over 11 years, and assisting Miss Janelle in classes for 5 years. This year I am taking on a much larger role in teaching and choreography and am so excited about this. I love Irish dance and it is my dream to own/run a dance school someday. Aside from dancing being one of my favorite hobbies, I love to play my violin, do arts and crafts, act in plays, spending hours outdoors, and hangout with my 2 younger sisters. I am really looking forward to this dance season, and to pass on the love and enjoyment of Irish dance to all the students I will be working with!! Looking forward to seeing kids again that I have worked with in the past, and to meeting new ones who are joining up this year!

    Bio's for Miss Janelle and Miss Bekah to come soon! :)
