Irish Dance

Irish_3

From beginner to champ, students are instructed in a nurturing and caring environment.  Our choreography focuses on form and technique as well as the stamina needed for Irish Step Dance.  We offer a variety of classes to students ages 4 and up.  New dancers will begin with the basics.  Dancers who have been dancing for at least a year will learn more difficult dances and can begin competing in competitions!

Beginner 1 is offered to first time students ages 4-6! Dancers will learn basic technique and form and will work towards mastering the traditional Irish Jig.

Beginner 2 is offered to students who have at least 1 year of experience OR first time students who are ages 7+. Dancers will learn at a faster pace and will work towards mastering all three soft shoe dances- the Jig, Reel, and Slip Jig. 

Novice is offered to students who are dancing in both soft and hardshoes. Dancers will focus on mastering hard shoe and will compete at feises more often.

Advanced is offered to students who've been taking Irish dance for over 5 years and frequently compete at feises.

Novice Competition is offered in conjunction with the Wednesday 4pm Novice class.

Prizewinner Prep is offered in conjunction with the Wednesday 5pm Advanced class. Dancers in this class are striving to compete all of their dances at the prizewinner level.

PC/Champ Prep is offered in conjunction with the Wednesday 5pm Advanced class. Dancers in this class are training for the Oireachtas.
