Beginning Irish Dance 1 & 2:
This class will focus on the fundamentals of Irish dance and music including technique, rhythm, footwork and musicality. Dancers will learn material from the solo step dancing tradition as well as the traditional ceili (social) dances that include more complex group figures and movements. Classes will also incorporate creative movement, contemporary choreography, and games – open to new and returning students! Beginner 1 will run from 4:30-5:15 and Beginner 2 will run from 4:30-5:30.

Advanced Beginner:
Open by invitation to students with a mastery of elementary steps and technique who have demonstrated a readiness for more complex material and more intensive instruction. This class will focus on building repertoire, strength and musicality, and stage presence whether for recreation, performance, or competition.

Adult Irish Dance:
This class will explore many aspects of the Irish dancing tradition from ceili (social) dancing to sean nós (old style) to contemporary step dancing. Guided by dancer interest, expect this class to cover a wide ranging repertoire with a focus on fundamentals including rhythm and musicality, technique specific to each style, and healthy movement and fitness.dance
