History

Starting with a handful of members in 2014 and no feis system in  place, the Executive Board of An Comhdhail USA initiated an  ambitious expansion program that has seen the organization  quickly now boasting six feiseanna in Florida alone.  The  membership has grown exponentially as teachers and dancers  realize there are other options in the USA for high quality  competitive Irish dancing.  While the majority of the USA  members are in Florida, the organization has seen expansion in  Montana, New York, and New Jersey. 

Open Platform

An Comhdhail USA participates in the Open Platform competition  circuit in North America to allow its dancers to compete more  frequently.  Open platform is a relatively new concept in North  America, wherein dancers are allowed to compete outside of  their own organization, and vice versa.  The competitions are run  by the rules of their respective organizations, and all dancers  must abide by them regardless of affiliation.
