The mission of the Hagen School is to preserve and expand the beautiful art form and wonderful tradition of Irish dance in a supportive and respectful way. Friendship and team spirit is stressed as the dancers work hard and are challenged to do their best not only by their instructors, but also by their classmates. All of us at the Hagen School are dedicated to encouraging and inspiring each dancer who walks through our doors to reach their fullest potential in dance, school, and their community
