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. Please visit our page of fame.

Logo Tote Bags

The RKIDs commemorative tote bags are made of sturdy canvas. At 17"w x 14"h x 5"d with a zippered center pouch, 12 inch tall straps, open front and side pouches (one is mesh for water bottles), they are great for carrying your dancing shoes or many other items. They cost $10 each, with Maryland sales tax included. They come in one dirt-resistant color: black. You can purchase them by coming to a Tuesday Ridgeview Middle School class. Sorry, there is no shipping available on this item. Send an email if you have questions.

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