Since 2007, we have provided quality Irish dance instruction to MetroWest Boston and the surrounding areas. Our dancers compete at the highest level and are experienced performers, but above all, have developed a love for Irish dancing and Irish culture.


Our Mission

Our goal is to foster a love for traditional Irish dancing in children of all ages. In our classes, dancers learn proper carriage, foot placement, and musicality, as well as the importance of practice and determination. Our small class sizes and individualized teaching approach mean that every student advances at their own pace, and receives the support they need to reach their potential, both as dancers and people. Our goal for all our Inishfree dancers during their careers is to work hard, have fun, and create life-long friendships!

Meghan has been instrumental in helping my daughter achieve her dance goals and fostering a passion for Irish dance. She guided my daughter from pre-beginner to open championship, nurtured her through injuries, and encouraged her to pursue other sports and interests so she maintains a balanced perspective, even though Irish dance is her first love!”


History of the School

Inishfree Massachusetts opened its doors in 2007, after director Meghan Allen Danaher earned her teaching certification (TCRG) from the Irish Dancing Commission in Ireland. The school is one of three Inishfree branches, with Inishfree New York, established in 1985 by Sean Reagan ADCRG, and Inishfree Texas, established by Neill Reagan ADCRG. Though neither competition nor performing is a requirement, dancers at Inishfree Massachusetts regularly compete on a regional, national, and international level, and have performed at a variety of venues, including for the former Irish President. In 2017, former Inishfree student Megan McNally joined the teaching staff after receiving her TCRG. Classes are currently held in Wayland, Framingham, and Concord, MA. 

Meghan gives your dancer individual attention, no matter their level or “accomplishments” in the Irish dance world. She has the ability to tailor choreography to your dancer’s strengths and she approaches any areas for improvement in a positive manner. Because of her calm demeanor, knowledge of the sport, and genuine love of Irish dance, Meghan has made sure every dancer can achieve success at Inishfree MA.”
