Bridge Street

Johnston School of Irish Dance

Festive Footwork in time for St. Patrick's Day

The Johnston School of Irish Dance began in 1993 with just a few students in a small garage where founder Ann Johnston Sullivan practiced as a child. That same studio has since grown to accommodate more than 200 students of all levels at five different locations throughout Central New York.

Lessons begin for dancers as young as 4 years old on a weekly basis in Syracuse, Fayetteville, Utica, Vestal and Watertown. Dancers also compete both nationally and internationally.

Ahead of Friday's St. Patrick's Day festivities, a few dancers stopped by Bridge Street to perform and teach TeNesha Murphy and Sistina Giordano a few Irish dance steps.

The Johnston School of Irish Dance is always accepting new students. To learn more about the studio visit them online at
