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.
