1991 - 2016: Our 25th Anniversary Year

Our final celebration event was "REELaxing at the Beach," which went off with a bang in mid-September. Earlier in the year, we held our 25th anniversary weekend and it was a smashing good time. Of course, we have pictures of the celebration and REELaxing events!


The RKIDs have been recognized by several governmental organizations for sustaining its mission of preserving Irish dance (and having fun at it) for 25 years. Recently, we won first place in the Gaithersburg 78th annual Labor Day parade's dance units division.Take a look at our page of fame.

The dances we practice are selected from MD-DC-VA ceili dance group sets and other sources. Learn more about us.
