Doherty Petri is a cross-community Irish Dancing school based in Belfast and New York City. Both Belfast’s Doherty and New York’s Petri schools agreed to merge last year giving us our new name of “Team Doherty Petri”. The ethos of our school is to promote Irish dancing culture and further promote engagement with the Irish Diaspora in the United State and take the competitive world of Irish dancing to a different level. We believe this merger of schools will create a more connected community that is driven by our common Celtic history and our shared passion for the Irish Dancing culture. As a result we hope to encourage lifelong cross Atlantic friendships. To this end we are hoping to bring over 20 kids to NYC on 28th June for just over 2 weeks. The children are from a cross community background which is quite unique in Northern Ireland for an Irish Dance school. The program we are hoping to follow will begin with 4 days in NYC. Then the whole Team Doherty Petri will travel by coach to the North American Irish Dance Championships in Montreal to compete which will last another 4 days. After the championships we will return to NYC for a summer camp that will include, dance, fun and friendship. Any giving amount will be greatly appreciated.
