The Rochester Irish Connection is an all-encompassing performing arts/recreation/entertainment hub located in the heart of Rochester—just seconds from Downtown—that caters to not only the Irish community in Rochester and the surrounding areas, but to any and all lovers of the arts. Our brand new, state of the art studio boasts a completely remodeled interior (floor to ceiling) and of course, a brand new 35’X19’ sprung dance floor.

The Rochester Irish Connection is not only the new and permanent home of Motor City Irish Dance Company—the Premier Irish Dance Company in Michigan, but it also offers training for musicians in the form of private Irish fiddle and Irish style vocal lessons (by appointment only). Motor City Irish Dance offers training for all ages (3 to adult) and performance opportunities for anyone interested in joining the company—be it for dance or music performance. We are also your one-stop-shop for Irish dance supplies, including tights, shoes and wigs.

The Rochester Irish Connection also offers specialty technique and conditioning classes in the form of Jig Fit, Zumba and Barre so that any dancer (and YOU!) can stay in top shape while helping to build stamina and increase flexibility and strength. NO dance experience required to take any of the fitness and conditioning classes.
