Chrissy is a Mom of 4 (2 bonus children) and just recently married her husband in April of 2021. The two met while living the dream of music and dance after being best friends for over a decade. Chrissy opened the school when she was just 18 years old in 2005 and has never looked back. Her passion and energy is second to none. Chrissy grew up dancing with Timoney School of Irish Dance and Pride of Erin and then moved to The Ryan School where she finished her competitive career with CLRG at the Preliminary Championship level. She has trained vigorously with members of Fusion Fighters, Riverdance and Lord of the Dance in her adult career and believes that "Leaders never stop learning". Chrissy also hustles another side business (Rodan & Fields Skincare) and loves learning more & helping others. She graduated from Jean Madeline Cosmetology in 2005 and worked in different salons until the school took off! Helping people look and feel their best has always been a part of her passion.
Brittany grew up dancing with CLRG (also at Ryan as an Open Champion) and danced at the Worlds in 2006. She started with Celtic Flame as a young adult after college. Brittany graduated from Temple University where she was also on their Irish Dance Team. Brittany (PharmD, MS, RAC) is now the Associate Director at GlaxoSmithKline and resides in Bucks County with her husband. We are honored to have her and admire all of her patience and skill.
Julianna has trained in multiple genres of dance since she was a little girl. She began Irish Dancing at age 7. She fell in love with this sport and gracefully made her way to the Championship level. Julianna has been teaching with Celtic Flame for 3 years and is a principal dancer at the school. Now, she is a sophomore at Delaware Valley University with a major in Animal Science. She is also on the dance team for the University. Her dedication in all that she does is inspiring.
Alyssa started with Celtic Flame at age 5 and is now 16. She has been at the Open Championship level for years and still is one of the hardest workers I know. Alyssa just recently trained with Riverdance & performed in their showcase at Boston Summer School in June 2022. She is a big sister, an employee at a local coffee shop & an ongoing inspiration at Celtic Flame. We are so excited to have her officially on staff.
There are many opportunities for the dancers to be class leader and work their way up to Junior & Assistant Instructor.
