There is SO much more than just the dance aspect.
At the D’Arcy School we’re about…


Finding each dancer’s inner confidence that will go far beyond the stage.


Making friendships that will last a lifetime.

Andrew "Pie" D'arcy was born in Galway, Ireland. In his early twenties, he moved to England for a job opportunity where he met a lovely girl named Bridget from Kerry, Ireland. The two fell in love and were married soon after. They moved back to Ireland together where they had two daughters, Marie and Pauline. It was then that they decided that Andrew needed to go to America for a while in order to establish a better life complete with religious freedom. After a year of working alone in America and sending money to his family in Ireland, Andrew then went home to Ireland to bring his family back to America! They moved into a home in East Orange where they continued to raise their daughters and eventually had two more sons, Patrick and Andrew. Andrew worked for Fords Motor Company before starting a new job at BASF while Bridget stayed at home with the children and worked a few part-time jobs. They consistently worked hard in order to provide their family with as many opportunities as possible. It is that hard work and dedication that Colleen wants to instill in her dancers. Andrew and Bridget came to America and made their dreams come true of making a better life and now Colleen is making her dream come true of owning the D'Arcy School of Irish Dance!
