Wick School School of Irish Dance

The Wick School of Irish Dance, New Jersey is owned and operated by Oireachtas champion Regan Wick, TCRG.

At the Wick School, we focus on excellence in the discipline of Irish dance, an appreciation of tradition, healthy competition, and friendship.

In addition to local, regional and international dance competition successes, we also develop an understanding and appreciation of traditional Irish music in collaboration with the Kelly Music School. Our recitals and performances feature both the live music and dance being passed to the next generation. Many students both dance and play music.

The Wick School is vetted and registered with
- The Irish Dance Commission (CLRG), Dublin, Ireland
- Irish Dance Teachers of North America - IDTANA
- Mid-Atlantic Region - IDTANA-MAR
