Our Mission and Our Team

At the Bentley Academy, dancers will learn and grow in an environment that fosters an appreciation of the art of Irish Dance. Dancers will leave each class feeling stronger, healthier, challenged, and more confident to achieve their dreams.


Join our family and we will achieve our dreams together.
