ABOUT US

Learn to Irish Dance!

in Yardley, PA!

Welcome to the Nicholl Irish Dancers!

Founded by Samantha Nicholl Fleming in 1993, and under the direction and ownership of Amelia Hartman since 2022, the Nicholl Irish Dancers promote Irish dance, music, and culture for all dancers ages 6 and up.

Our dancers have participated in many local community events and annual parades including: Sesame Place, the Bucks County and Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day parades, the Memorial Day parade in Yardley and Trenton Thunder and Phillies baseball games. Along with community events, the Nicholl Irish Dancers have traveled to dance at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Walt Disney World and Universal studios in Orlando, and The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. All of our trips have given us stories and memories to last us a lifetime!

Although our focus is centered on recreational dancing and local shows and performances, we also participate in competitive dancing through Rince Tuatha Nua, an open-platform Irish Dance organization.

Our dance school season runs from September to June with open registration in July.
