Meet the teachers

At the Hall School of Irish Dance, Gabrielle and Bridget create a fun and supportive environment for their dancers. They work with each dancer individually to help them reach their unique Irish dancing goals, whether that is just to have some fun, to compete in the National Championships or anything in between.

Both Gabrielle and Bridget are registered with An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha (Irish Dancing Commission) in Dublin and the Australian Irish Dancing Association (AIDA) Inc.
