New York Celtic Dancers

Welcome to the New York Celtic Dancers website.   We are a New York City based dance group providing performances, classes and demonstrations/exhibitions in Scottish highland, step, hard shoe and country dancing across the tri-state area.   

The New York Celtic Dancers are available for performances of all kinds, from formal theater performances to outdoor festivals, weddings, Burns Night Dinners and balls.  We have performed for many years at the Cloisters Medieval Festival, as well as joining Clan Currie annually to celebrate Tartan Week in a series of performances on Ellis Island. 

Performance/media highlights included an NYCD appearance with Caledon in a sold out performance on Long Island and press citings including TV appearances on NBC New York and Fox 5 News New York and photo appearances in the NY Daily News.

Director Allison Fippinger provides private and group lessons in the NYC metropolitan area for beginners and advanced students alike.

Please contact us at for more information.  We look forward to sharing our love of Scottish culture and dance with you.
