Allison Wetterauw has been a competitive Irish dancer for sixteen years. She has been ranked regionally and has had the pleasure of competing at the Irish Dance World Championships several times in both solo and ceili dances. She has danced for the world renowned Broesler School of Irish Dance where she owes her success and love for Irish dancing.
For the past five years, Allison has been involved in the world of collegiate Irish dance. Starting at the Irish Dance Club at The Catholic University of America, she held the position of captain for four years and grew the club from three to twenty-five dancers. In addition to this, she oversaw the team’s choreography by creating fun dances and teaching ceili dances. These efforts helped propel the team at Catholic University to compete and place at several intercollegiate competitions at both Villanova and Dayton University.
Allison now has the pleasure of running the Irish Dance Team at Sacred Heart University. Under her direction, at the team’s first intercollegiate competition at Villanova University, the dancers took home a number of awards which included first in the eight-hand, solo treble, and fun number competitions. She looks forward to continuing the success of the Sacred Heart Claddagh dancers.
