Our mission is #trainingchampions. As a competitive school, we focus on drawing the lessons learned through competition, rather than the results themselves.
Costello Irish Dance was founded in 2015 and we're the only Quebec school west of Montreal. We keep our class sizes small with a maximum of 12 dancers in Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. From the time an individual begins to learn Irish dance in our school and right up until their last competition, the focus is on refining the basic technique to create a strong foundation for continuous growth.
We are here for dancers and families who:
Thrive in a disciplined environment
Believe in the benefits of competition
Focus on learning
Love to sweat
We are not here for dancers and families who:
Find more excuses to not practice than reasons to practice
Focus on the progress of others, rather than their own
Gossip and/or bully
Our dancers are trained to see everything as an opportunity. We believe this sets them up to maximize their potential, ultimately achieving the goals they set out for themselves.

Casey Costello, ADCRG
Casey began his dance career over 25 years ago. In solos, he won four Eastern Canadian Championship titles, placed 3rd in North America, and finished 8th in the World. In teams, he led his team to win fifteen Eastern Canadian Championship titles and to place 3rd at both the North American and World Championships.
Casey founded Costello Irish Dance in September 2015 to share his passion with the next generation of competitors in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges area. By combining his creative training in dance, his formal education in science, and his respect for youthful ambition, Casey creates a well-rounded experience for every dancer in the school.
In 2021 and again in 2023, Casey was the recipient of Irish Dancing Magazine's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He was among a select group of 20 certified teachers worldwide to receive the award and the only teacher in Canada to receive this award twice.
