The Claddagh School of Irish Dance recently graced Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport with traditional solo and group dances in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Dressed in traditional Irish dancing attire, the dancers performed three 20-minute pieces to surprise and delight passengers with every step.

The Ventura, Calif., dancers include many Regional, National and World Champion dancers. Dubbed “California’s Premier Irish Dance Company,” the group has a proud 30-year history.

“We at Westfield are always looking for opportunities to bring more of LA into LAX,” said Dan Hough, Westfield’s Vice President at LAX. “By showcasing local talent, we are able to celebrate and provide a fun experience for travelers.”

Next up for the Claddagh School are the annual World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland! They will send four teams to compete as well as multiple World Qualifier dancers ranging in age from nine to 21 years old. We wish the Claddagh School of Irish Dance the best of luck and hope to see them in our Airports again next year!
