Hooley’s School of Irish Dance

Hooley’s School of Irish Dance is planning to build a new dance studio at 1 South State Street in Leola to accommodate its continuing success and growing enrollment. The 4,080-square-foot building will be nearly 50 percent larger than its current facility, allowing the school to grow from its current enrollment of 141 to over 200 students. Hooley’s School of Irish Dance was started by Crystal Glick Carper, with the mission to cultivate character and excellence through a supportive community and learning environment.

In partnership with Union Community Bank, EDC Finance Corporation provided a $307,000 SBA 504 loan to help with the costs associated with acquiring the commercial lot and constructing the new building. You can learn more about Hooley’s School of Irish Dance at: website.
