MISSION & VISION
Rince na Grá School of Irish Dance, located in Moscow, Idaho, aims to provide a high-quality, Christ-honoring dance education as a way of serving families in the Palouse.
Rince na Grá is the Gaelic phrase for "Dance for Love." The kind of love we hope will define and shape our dance school is more than a list of ways to be kind. It originates with God and can only be found in His son, Jesus Christ:
Beloved, let us love one another,
for love is from God,
and whoever loves
has been born of God
and knows God.
Anyone who does not love
does not know God,
because God is love.
In this, the love of God
was made manifest among us,
that God sent his only Son into the world
so that we might live through him.
In this is love, not that we have loved God,
but that he loved us and sent his Son
to be the propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:7-11
This Gospel teaches us to say, "My life for yours." This is what we try to imitate by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). And so, our desire is to have this love transform everything we do--including the way we dance!
Love is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast;
it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never ends.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
CODE OF CONDUCT
We want all of our students to experience their dance education in an environment characterized by love and gratitude. Each class begins with a prayer by the instructor. Students are required to conduct themselves respectfully and attentively at all times and work cheerfully and diligently in class.
If a student displays any behavior that is deemed disruptive by the instructor, they may be required to sit out during all or part of the class and parents will be notified of the behavior. Continued disruptive behavior or first-offense serious misbehavior may result in dismissal from the dance program. Rince na Grá reserves the right to dismiss any students from the school at any time if the student’s attitude or behavior is not in compliance with the Code of Conduct as understood by the director and the teachers.
