HOW TO JOIN

FOR TEACHERS

Once a teacher has passed their T.C.R.G. examination and has registered with CLRG they can then register with RCCEA. All active teachers, both resident or non resident, operating in our region are encouraged to join. It must be noted that if teachers wish to enter dancers at our annual Oireachtas - World Qualifiers, they must be registered. You can always contact your Regional representative for help or advice on how to get started.

JOIN

FOR DANCERS

CLRG Irish dance schools are now to be found in most areas of Europe, Russia, Asia and the Middle East. The purpose of this website is to assist anyone wishing to join a CLRG registered school in the above mentioned region. New pupils are always welcome, as the main goal of CLRG is to promote and develop Irish dancing and its wider culture, especially its language and music. Please check the Teachers and Schools section to find a school closest to you.

SOUTH WEST EUROPE

ABOUT


Irish dancing in this area started in the early 1990s. During the nineties small groups worked to become fully organized Irish dance schools, with teachers becoming TCRGs.
There are currently 2 schools in Italy, 2 in Switzerland, 2 in France, and 1 in Spain and Portugal. This region is growing steadily. The first ADCRG and BG in mainland Europe come from this region - Esther Bromley, Italy. 

Two annual feisanna are run in The South West, although the very first feis in France will be held this year- 2018.
