LEARN IRISH DANCE WITH A WORLD-CLASS ORGANIZATION IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA! THE POSSAK HAMPSHIRE ACADEMY IS ONE OF THE MOST ESTABLISHED AND SUCCESSFUL SCHOOLS IN WESTERN CANADA. WE BELIEVE IN EXCELLENCE IN BOTH COMPETITION AND PERFORMANCE.
Our goal is to teach Irish dancing to the best of each student's ability, and to instill a real sense of joy in competition, performance and teamwork. The Possak Hampshire Academy provides professional, comprehensive and affordable instruction with an emphasis upon fitness, healthy competition, and personal development. The academy is accredited by the largest global governing body of Irish dance (An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha) and proud to be based in the vibrant communities of southern Alberta.
The Possak Hampshire Academy was formed in 2016 as the result of a creative association between two of Alberta's top Irish Dance schools: the Possak School in Calgary and the Bhriomhar School in Okotoks and Lethbridge. The Possak School was founded in 1997 by Linda Possak Anderson and Bhriomhar was founded in 2006 by sisters Ali and Cait Hampshire.
Possak Hampshire dancers are strong competitors on the local, national and international stage. Soloists from the academy have taken home Regional Oireachtas 1st place titles and ranked in the top 10 in North America and top 20 in the world. Teams have achieved a North American 1st place title in Figure Choreography. Possak Hampshire dancers are also experienced show dancers, performing at a variety of venues throughout the year, culminating in our annual year-end concert. Possak Hampshire dancers have successfully auditioned for professional dance companies and performance workshops, including Studio2Stage, Take the Floor, and the Riverdance Summer School.
