About The Butler-Sheehan Academy

The Butler Academy of Irish Dance was started in Dublin, Ireland more than 70 years ago by Mae Butler.  Her son, Patrick Butler, taught Irish Dance in New York State for over thirty years! He has much to his accomplishment, including the honor of dancing for the Queen of England, President Kennedy and has appeared in the annual St. Patrick's Day show at Carnegie Hall, along with Carmel Quinn for five consecutive years.  He is a retired, undefeated Canadian Champion Dancer, and a North American Champion Dancer.  We are quite privileged to have had him teach and guide our children!

In 2006, Mr. Butler partnered with Pattie Sheehan-Malinowski to form The Butler-Sheehan Academy of Irish Dance.  Pattie had been a student of Mr. Butler since her early childhood and his assistant for many years.

In March of 2007, Patrick Joseph Butler was taken from us, but The Butler-Sheehan Academy of Irish Dance continues his work under the skilled guidance of Pattie Sheehan-Malinowski, T.C.R.G.
