Founded in 1989 by Maria Kenney Buckhaults, the purpose of the Irish Dancers of Savannah is to "promote and preserve Irish culture and tradition in Savannah through dance". The IDS are devoted to "keeping the tradition alive" by providing Irish dance lessons to children and adults and by performing lively dance routines at various cultural, religious, civic and private events.


Under the direction of Savannah native Maggie Sikes, who has been dancing for over 25 years, this hard working and energetic group was the city's first organized Irish dance school.


A true family atmosphere abounds with the Irish Dancers of Savannah - where LOYALTY & FRIENDSHIP reign and everyone is welcome to JOIN THE DANCE!
