About us

About the School:

The Faherty School and De Menezes Academy joined forces in 2010 and have had two teachers teaching over the last few years. With the retirement of Brenda, we are now the De Menezes Academy. Our locations include Brantford, and Niagara Falls and we offer competitive and recreational classes in both locations. Jennifer aspires to bring a positive, familial atmosphere to the school both with tireless energy and ever ready praise.

About the Teacher:

Jennifer De Menezes-Robitaille has been teaching since 2005 and joined with Brenda in 2010. Before teaching, Jennifer was a highly competitive Irish Dancer who was a World competitor for ten consecutive years. Jennifer competed in many overseas competitions before becoming the lead dancer in both the Spirit of Ireland and Magic of Ireland. It is with this experience, Jennifer is able to bring a different flavor to choreography and irish dance.  Her passion for Irish dance is well known and shines through in her wonderful ceili choreography which is displayed at shows and the end of the year Hooley as well as through the many competitive dancers dancing under her instruction.
