The Haley Prendergast School of Irish Dance (HPID) was established in 1996.  With over 100 students throughout the Puget Sound, HPID focuses on teaching the traditional skills, technique, and rhythms of Irish Dance.   Along with the dancing instruction, we enthusiastically instill in our students a sense of Ireland’s rich history and tradition.  Our mission is to help every dancer achieve their goals in dance in a positive, safe, supportive & inclusive environment.
