A fundraiser for the Richens/Timm academy of Irish dance at the Grand Valley Dale Ballroom.
The Richens/Timm Academy is one of the most recognizable and respected names in the world of Irish dance. It is the most established and accomplished school in both central Ohio and central Indiana. The Academy’s rich history began over 35 years ago when Ann Richens ADCRG, a native of Dublin, Ireland, began traveling to Columbus from Dayton, Ohio to share her passion for Irish dance. After her prized pupil, John Timm, captured the 1993 Senior Men’s World Championship title, they partnered and the school became the Richens/Timm Academy. In 1994 John continued the tradition of the traveling dance master while expanding the Academy’s reach into Indiana. Under their direction, the Richens/Timm Academy currently serves locations in Columbusd (Dublin) and Dayton, OH ,Indianapolis and Tipton, IN, and now a satellite studio in Wyoming.
