About
Kinsella Irish Dance

WE STARTED KINSELLA SO THAT SOME DAY OUR OWN CHILDREN COULD START DANCING IN A POSITIVE, FAMILY ORIENTED COMMUNITY. NOW WE HAVE 4 OUT OF 5 OF OUR KIDS DANCING...

We founded Kinsella Irish Dance in 2004 with the mission to develop a premier Irish dance program that promotes a love of Irish dance, music, and culture in a family-oriented, safe, and enriching environment.    

We met at the age of 5 in Irish dance class at the Cashel Dennehy Irish Dance school in Milwaukee.  Ryan's mother, Therese Kinsella was our first instructor.  We grew up performing and competing together under the amazing instruction of Dennis, Marge, and Kathy Dennehy.  We have had success competing both as soloists and on ceili teams at the Regional, National, and World Championships.  

Both Ryan and Brigid have their T.C.R.G.'s with An Comisiun le Rince Gaelecha.


We have five beautiful children age 8 and under, and love sharing our passion for Irish culture with them.    Spending quality time together is important; we love that our studios are second and third homes to the kids and, that they feel so comfortable in the space.  Our kids are making wonderful memories while building lifelong friendships.  We couldn't be happier!

Our Team

Since opening Kinsella Irish Dance in Milwaukee, we've expanded to the Fox Cities and Brookfield.  We wouldn't have been able to do this without our wonderful teaching staff.  Meet them below!
