The Elwood School of dancing is registered with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha.
 
The ethos of the class is to provide an environment where pupils enjoy themselves while learning strong dancing skills. 
 
Classes are held in the hall at Scoil Iosa, Ballyhaunis on Saturdays and Wednesdays.  The main class is on Saturdays.

Wednesdays     5.00pm-Beginners & Adv Beginners       6.00pm-Advanced
 
Dancing Events:
 
Many of the children attending class compete at feiseanna. The dancing school has dancers competing at all grades and levels.  Many children choose to dance but do not get involved in competition.
 
 
The School frequently performs at local festivities and events, as well as at weddings and other functions. The local nursing homes benefit from a performance a few times each year and the dancers are more than happy to oblige.  Recently the class put on a show at a concert in Gorthaganny to celebrate the centenary of the school and at a concert in Loughlinn to support the Dermot Earley memorial. Each year pupils from the class compete at the Connacht, All-Ireland and World championships as well as at many feiseanna around the province and country.
