Higgins Academy is a family business founded by sisters Sarah and Kathryn Higgins, joined by their mum Caroline. Sarah started dancing at the age of 3 followed soon after by Kathryn with the Bredesen School in Auckland, NZ. After moving to Sydney in 1991 with their family they started dancing with the Rochford school and then the Janice Currie Studio. Under the Currie studio both Sarah and Kathryn won numerous local, state and national titles, competed at the World Irish dancing championships in Ireland and performed on stages both locally and internationally. Now both qualified TCRG's with CLRG they look forward to sharing their love and passion of Irish dance that was passed onto them by their mum Caroline.
