Now Open: New Longfellow Studio Location! 

Mactir has grown, and now we need a new studio to match that! After 3 years in our Standish-Ericsson studio on 38th it was time to move to a bigger studio space. Our new studio is located at 3709 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis 55406 directly next to The Howe! We are currently in a temporary studio space, while our permananent space is built this Fall! 

Contact us for more information on how to book Mactír for your next event!


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, poise, and create lifelong friendships.

Our Philosophy...
Mactír Academy of Irish Dance (meaning Wolf Academy of Irish Dance) 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 is 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.
