Amy Coppola TCRG
Amy Coppola is the heart and soul of Dunleavy. Her life's work is ensuring that every dancer who walks in through the studio doors finds a home at Dunleavy. She is constantly finding new methods to inspire her students and motivate them to realize their fullest potential.
She started Irish dancing at age six and knew shortly after that she would someday open her own Irish dancing school. Her vision of creating a community based in tradition and culture found soil to grow in when she founded Dunleavy Irish Dance in 2014.
Her passion for Irish music inspired her to study the fiddle and join the community of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann musicians. Amy served on the CCE committee for many years and dedicates herself to supporting young musicians. She has traveled to Boston, New York City, the Catskill Mountains, and Ireland to pursue this passion. She incorporates traditional Irish music in the program at Dunleavy to give her students a much deeper experience in Irish dancing. Because of this, Dunleavy dancers are often seen on stage performing alongside world class musicians.
