WELCOME TO THE HOME OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP DANCERS!!
Our Florida location is led by former World Championship qualifier, TCRG/ADCRG and former NFL cheerleader Patty Darrah.
Patty trained and competed under the legendary Rita O'shea in Boston, Ma. Still teaching today, Rita continues to be a support and advisor in her life. Patty's competitive record speaks for itself being as member of an elite group of dancers to qualify for the World Championship's numerous times in both solos and teams.
Patty has a unique skill set that she brings to Legacy. After her success in the Irish dance world she beat out 500 dancers to earn one of 19 spots on the elite NFL's New England Patriots Cheerleader's. Patty's leadership skills were highlighted as NEPC captain for years. She was also voted as the Patriots representative for the prestigious ProBowl squad in Hawaii.
After her NFL stint she was hired by the Canadian Football League as director and choreographer to bring NFL style entertainment to Canada. Patty has performed and worked with some of the biggest stars and corporations in world. Her expertise in precision, showmanship and leadership is shared with her dancers. She currently works with the NEPC alumni organization.
For the last 16 years she has combined her experience in both dance worlds to help train some of the best Irish dancers in the world.
Patty Darrah is one of the few certified adjudicators in the Irish dance world and the only one in Northeast Fl. Having an adjudicator on staff is just one of the perks for a Legacy dancer.
We are a team of 4 certified Legacy instructors... Patty, Brent, Abbey and Gail work together numerous times throughout the years bringing all 3 locations together for training, fitness, team bonding and loads of fun!
Patty has the reputation for creating an class environment filled with high fives, high expectations and high podium results.
Patty calls Ponte Vedra home. Living locally allows her dancers to have hands on experienced instruction and personal attention any day of the week
All dancers get a chance to perform in the community and at competitions from beginner to Championship level!
Legacy has also created a mentorship program where dancers have the opportunity to lead and become great role models for newer dancers.
The Jax crew will say that the studio is their second home. A safe place where hard work and Legacy Love go hand in hand. Our dancers are modest, classy and kind to all. Pop in our lobby and see for yourself! We are FAMILY!
Legacy is the ONLY Irish dance studio in Northeast Florida with an EXPERIENCED TCRG/ADCRG/TMRF teaching every class. We are proud to be the ONLY local school to produce LOCAL National and World Championship dancers!
