The Garrett School of Irish Dance announces upcoming sessions including brand new ceili classes for children and adults! Registration is open at https://sites.google.com/view/garrettschool/classes

Winter/Spring Session: Jan 11 – May 10 Session Tuition: $185 (60 min) or $140 (45 min) Children, ages 6+: Fridays 4:30-5:15/5:30 Teens & Adults: Fridays 5:30-6:30

These classes are suitable for returning students, dancers with 1-2 years experience, and those returning to Irish dance after a break. The focus will be on soft shoe dances including jigs and reels as well as a bit of ceili (group) dancing, beginning with the basic steps and movements fundamental to the Irish dance tradition. Brand new students should attend our Introductory Ceili Classes in February to prepare to join the Friday class. There will be no class on March 3, March 22, or April 2. Friday, May 17 will be reserved for a make-up class in the event of a snow day.

Please note that we are not accepting transfers from local Irish dance schools at this time. Please complete this form to register for the session.

Introductory Ceili Class: Feb 2 – March 2 Session Tuition: $60 or drop-in rate: $15/class Children, ages 6-11: Saturdays 11:30-12:30 Mixed Class, ages 12-adult: Saturdays 12:30-1:30

Our brand new ceili classes will focus entirely on the traditional social dances of Ireland. A different form than the percussive group set dances which typically involve four couples in a square, ceili dances are performed in soft shoes and include both simple and complex figures for dancers in a variety of configurations. Ceili dances are good exercise and great fun for all ages. Come learn a few steps just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day and our first annual Community Ceili on March 3rd!
