North Star Irish Dance strives to foster the tradition of Irish dancing while connecting to the community through performances and volunteer outreach. NSID can offer differentiated dance education and welcomes dancers of all levels and learning styles.


For seven years, NSID has been offering the opportunity to learn Irish dance for fun and performance through fostering the tradition of step, team, and céilí dances while encouraging a connection to the community.

NSID participates in regional events such as the IMDA’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration/Day of Irish Dance and the Minnesota Irish Fair. We also take our love of Irish dance to retirement communities and other events such as the Autism Society of Minnesota’s Steps of Hope.

NSID has classes in two locations: Hopkins and Northfield. Classes in Hopkins (NSID-West) are at the Main Street School for Performaing Arts. Classes in Northfield are at Division Street Dance.

NSID’s vision of “connecting to community” is fulfilled with regular performances at reirement homes, day cares, and local festivals as well as volunteering at least twice a year in a non-dance setting. For the past 3 years, we have volunteered at Feed My Starving Children.
