Community, Culture & love of the Rince. Castilla Irish Dance.

Instructor | Owner Ciara Duignan TCRG



Ciara began dancing at the age of 5 with the kids from the local Irish Society in Kelowna, BC, under the watchful eye of Ethna Tutt. Ethna taught recreational Irish dance classes for many years, fostering the love of Irish Culture, music & dance across the Okanagan Valley. Eventually Ciara had the opportunity to dance competitively with the Blakey School, and competed at the highest level - qualifying for & dancing at the World championships, North American Championships, and European Championships.

Ciara achieved her TCRG certification in 2011 and is a certified member of An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha. She has been teaching Irish dance in Penticton since 2009 and opened the Castilla School of Irish dance in 2018.
