Blackbirds Irish Dance is an Irish dance group created and run by students. Blackbirds explore all types of Irish dance, including softshoe dances, hardshoe dances, traditional Ceili dances, and contemporary dances choreographed by students. We accept dancers with and without experience - most of the dancers learned Irish dance at Wooster and don't have any formal training. The more experienced dancers teach and lead the others.

Each year, we engage with the Wooster community and beyond! We perform in the Culture Show on campus each fall, and have performed at cultural events and Celtic festivals throughout Ohio.

We are always seeking new dancers!
