Our Teachers

Philip Brady, Director & TCRG:

Irish dance teacher, World Champion Irish step dancer and performer, heads up the Brady Academy of Irish Dance in Winnipeg and Saskatoon.  His accomplishments and credentials as a true professional have been instrumental in showcasing the beauty and excitement of Irish Dance to audiences around the world.  

Philip began dancing at 10 years of age in Dublin, Ireland. During his competitive years Philip achieved champion status, winning 10 consecutive Canadian Irish Dance, 3 North American and 5 overseas World Champion titles.  

As a performer, Philip shone in his own production of "Dream of Ireland" for Walt Disney World Productions, and thrilled audiences during his extensive tour with the international production, "Lord of the Dance".  

Philip's unique style, boundless energy and loose yet mechanically precise footwork permit him to stretch the versatility of Irish Dance to it's very limit.
