"Most Unique Parade Entry" at the 2017 Peculiar Harvest Moon Parade
3rd Place at the 2019 Kansas City St. Patrick's Day Parade (Irish Dance School Division)
“My daughter loves Emily as her Irish dance teacher! I am always amazed at the performances at how great their dances are. In just a few short months my daughter has learned so much and is so excited about Irish dance. She has not had this excitement about her other dance classes.” We love HID! – Stephanie Smith (Google Business Review)
“So excited to hear about the opening of the Heartland Irish Dancers in the southern Kansas City, KS/MO metro area! I love Irish Dance and have been involved with Irish Dance for over 35 years with my daughter, niece and granddaughter. Emily McCarty, TCRG, was my granddaughter's first (and favorite) Irish Dance teacher. Emily's love of Irish Dance and culture shines through in her teaching. She is a wonderfully supportive and encouraging teacher who bring out the best in each child, at each child's own level.
I highly recommend the Heartland Irish Dancers and wish them the greatest success.” - Priscilla Ellinor (Google Business Review)
“My daughter has not been taking lessons for very long, but she has learned a lot of steps and is having a great time. Being in the parade this past weekend was very enjoyable and gave her a chance to perform. Emily is kind and patient and she makes the classes fun for the students. We are really happy with our experience so far!” – Lauren Klimt (Google Business Review)
“Emily is an outstanding Irish dance instructor. My children have had the privilege of taking classes with her for quite a while now. She is professional and friendly; she has a gift with children of all ages - from kindergarten through high school and college-aged dancers. She is kind and encouraging while still pushing children to excellence. She wants them to have fun while also doing the best that they can and achieving their personal goals. What a blessing to have a TCRG-credentialed Irish dance instructor with Emily's experiences, personality, and teaching style offering classes locally!”- Kristin Knight (Google Business Review)
