Our Irish dance classes for beginners teach the basics of Irish dance. We have a strong focus on both technique and fun so we create well-rounded and skilled dancers.
Our Beginners have the opportunity to take part in performances, competitions, and grade exams. This allows them to get involved in the community and gain confidence.
The Advanced class builds on previous training to develop each dancer’s technique, skill level and abilities to the highest level. The steps become more challenging and complex.
Our advanced dancers work their way towards State, National and even International level competition. Some have even gone on to tour in professional shows!
Our team classes teach dancers to work together - and use their arms!! Ceili is a group form of Irish dancing for teams of four or more dancers. We teach both traditional team dances as well as modern choreographies.
Participation in our Teams Program develops a strong work ethic and team mentality as dancers work together towards a common goal.
