Irish Dance

Ages 3½-12
We are excited to make your new beginner a champion! Our intro to Irish Dance program provides an energetic environment with inspiring instruction that helps children develop a love of Irish Dance and the self-confidence to perform in front of an audience! Our dancers will learn a variety of Irish Dance basics like foot placement, balance, posture, and step memorization while learning the traditional Irish Jig. They will learn a sense of timing and rhythm by practicing to traditional Irish music in class. But, most importantly, they make long lasting friendships that last
a lifetime! Program attire consists of gym shoes or ballet shoes and gym shorts. Please bring a water bottle to class. Times subject to change based on enrollment.
