About

Welcome to our website!

The Brooks Academy of Irish Dancing was
started in 1972 by John Brooks ADCRG. A champion solo dancer, and World champion Ceili and figure dancer, John’s passion for Irish Dancing grew and grew, and he produced champions of his own at the All Ireland, Great Britain, British National, North American, All Scotland and Southern England Oireachtas. His dancers also placed as high as 2nd in the Worlds and appeared in Riverdance - The Show.

John was very much a family man, and although he never really retired, he passed the running of the school down to his children Ciaron, Sinead & Aislinn and took more of a backseat as he battled a long illness, that he sadly lost in October 2019.

The Academy expanded and together with Ian Boyd ADCRG now run classes all over Hertfordshire, North London, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
