Meet the teachers/choreographers

   Kyra Archibald and Catherine Lamont have danced from the ages of 3 and 4 years old respectively. Together they have amassed competitive success holding national championship titles in both solo and team categories. In addition they have performed in theatre dance shows for the past 13 years and toured the European Celtic festival circuit since 2005.

Collectively they have many years experience in teaching a vast age-range of pupils; from beginner to senior dancers.  Moreover their strong passion for original, distinctive choreography is recognised both in the competition world and with international audiences.  Their ambition is to develop high standard Irish dancers, enabling them to enjoy the same experiences.  

What makes Innova different? - Tradition with a Twist  

While the focus of the company is on the instruction of Irish dance, other pursuits such as modern dance and fitness classes provide additional elements.  This variety of activities, besides being great fun, allows for a fresh approach to be taken towards traditional Irish dancing, particularly enlivening performance work.  

The Aim

Innova’s aim is to inspire its members and audiences to fall in love with Irish dancing and appreciate the immense enjoyment that it can bring.  We want to inject new energy, vision and fun into this traditional art form and help create friendships and bonds that can last a lifetime.  

We’re fresh, we’re current and we’re innovative.  Start your journey with us today!
