    Why should you choose Kellyn Celtic Arts?  

    Kellyn Celtic Arts Irish Dance is positively dedicated to providing the highest quality instruction,
artistry, performance excellence and competitive integrity to Southwest Florida, and beyond.  We are family
owned, family operated, and family oriented-- our school is multi-generational, multi-cultural, and  enthusiastically
committed to excellence at all levels of the dance; from our youngest beginners to our Championship-level
dancers, our adult dancers, our performance group dancers, and everything in between.  We welcome everyone
to come and join us, whether you're Irish, a wee bit Irish, or just Irish at heart!  We have carefully crafted our own
unique niche here in Southwest Florida, with an abiding love and respect for Irish dance.  Passing the dance on
to the next generations is our way of helping to preserve and celebrate the richness and beauty of the vibrant
Irish culture, which is our heritage.

    We have often been asked why our dancers dance so eloquently, with such style and energy.  The answer
lies in our decidedly different approach to Irish dance education.  Kellyn Celtic Arts dancers have the benefit of
the depth of expertise of our Directors, co-founders Jaime A. Knaub and Kimberly Kelly Knaub.  Ms. Jaime's
incomparable musical background, Championship dance technique and instruction, together
with Ms. Kimberly's
eye for composition and performance, are the key.  The resulting exciting proprietary choreography is uniquely
Kellyn-- strong yet elegant, precise and lively, dynamic and lyrical.  Ireland is a country
of beauty and strength--
her dance reflects the character of her people.  Kellyn's "poetry in motion" is truly Irish.

    Although performance is never required, our performance opportunities are many and varied, from outdoor
community festivals and medieval fairs, to private and corporate events, country clubs, full stage performances,
schools, assisted living facilities, weddings and parties, just to name a few!  We believe sharing our traditions in
support of our communities is of the utmost importance, and heightening cultural awareness and unity though
the universality of dance, both in the studio and out, is the essence of Kellyn Celtic Arts.  We encourage our
students to "step" out and join the fun.

    Our Kellyn Celtic Arts competitive dancers have consistently placed and won in all competitions the school
has entered (including multiple Golds in our last five National Championships, as well as students qualified to attend
the World Championships each year).  Competitive dance is offered as a personal choice, as is performance--
it is never required.  We are exceptionally proud of all of our dancers, no matter the path they choose.

    Kellyn Celtic Arts has been, and continues to be, the best choice in Southwest Florida for dance.  Make an
appointment today to see which Kellyn class will be the best for you, and yours.  Come experience the difference
a truly excellent Irish dance school and instructor can make!
Come for the fun of it . . . stay for the love of it! (R)
