Dancers learn the iconic moves of Irish step dancing, and have the opportunity to compete if they wish. We start out with simpler steps that develop the dancer's technique, then progress to harder steps as the dancer's skill develops.
Both soft shoe and hard shoe are taught, including modern steps as well as traditional dances.
Ceili and Figure Teams
Ceili is a team form of soft shoe Irish dancing, featuring complex formations with four or more dancers. We teach both the traditional team dances as well as modern "Choreographies".
Dancers develop a strong work ethic and team mentality by working together for a common goal.
Our performance classes teach Riverdance-style show routines which are performed at various events throughout the year. These events give dancers a fun and non-competitive outlet for their dancing.
Dancers will develop their stage confidence and gain valuable performance experience.
