Welcome to Drake School of Irish Dance in South Florida

A tribute honoring the memory of Cara Loughran, our classmate and friend, who lost her life on February 14, 2018 in the shooting at Douglas High School. We will always remember her sweet smile.

We hold Cara and her family in our hearts and keep her spirit alive with our dance. We dance for Cara and #CaraDancesOn Thank you Butterfly World for letting us film at your beautiful site. A huge thank you to everyone who helped put this video together!


Since it’s beginning, Drake Irish Dance has branched out across the South. Mr. Karl expanded to Fort Lauderdale, Sarasota and Fort Walton Beach in Florida. After establishing schools in five southern states, Karl Drake went global by expanding into Mexico and China. Drake Irish dancers have a record of competitive achievements including Regional Champions, National Champions and World Medal holders.

Drake Irish Dancers perform for private, corporate and community events throughout the year. Please visit our performance page to learn more about booking the dancers for parties, weddings, cultural events, and school & retirement home performances.
