Friendship, Loyalty, and Love

Bringing the qualities of the Claddagh to our dancers!

AIDC was formed in 2021 by Director Kimberly Morgan Mullenix.  It was her dream to return home and bring this dance form to life through classes and performances.  She brings over 25 years of Irish dance teaching experience and love for the art form back to the northeast Tennessee area to share with children and adults alike.  Focused on the meaning of the Claddagh, an Irish symbol of hands holding a heart with a crown, we strive to embody Friendship, Loyalty, and Love within our dance school.
