Welcome to the Wolf Pack!

Our Philosophy...


Mactír Academy of Irish Dance (Mactír is the Irish word for wolf) offers both competitive and performance based classes with a focus on precision, teamwork, and grace. Mactir Academy strives to be the premiere team-based competition school in Minnesota, where dancers and families choose their own journey: whether that's going to a couple feiseanna (competitions) a year, performing with local and international bands, or competing in the Irish Dance World Championships. Our dancers celebrate this exquisite art form in a variety of settings and spread the joy of Irish Dance to everyone they meet.

Our Mission...

-Inspire dancers to strive for excellence both in and out of the dance studio.

-Spread the joy and beautiful tradition of Irish step dancing.

-Use dance as a vehicle to build confidence and poise and create lifelong friendships.
