Irish Dancing Lessons For Adults – Noncompetitive, Invigorating & Fun…(and no snootiness allowed :)

Non-Competitive Irish Dancing Lessons For Adults

Watch this short 30-second video of a class of intermediate level dance students in progress. Are they perfect... well some yes, but everyone in this Irish dance class looks really good and they're all having fun.  As the Irish say; Gurb é an bealach ba chóir é a bheith! (The way it ought to be!)

Irish Dancing Classes: The most inspirational of all.

It’s fun, energetic and highly aerobic. It’s also one of the most beautiful and inspiring dance styles on earth. We’ll get you started in this wonderful Irish tradition that mesmerized the world through the River Dance performances. Beginning level students will learn the basic jig and reel steps and put them together into simple solo and ceili (group) dances. Intermediate level students will include more complicated patterning and preparations for hard shoe.

What to look for in an Irish dancing class!

  • Look for non-competitive Irish dance classes where everyone is friendly and you'll always feel welcome.
  • You'll want  an Irish dancing class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for you.
  • Insist on a dance studio with specially designed 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect your feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven forbid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Patronize schools with accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert dance teachers who know how to give you personalized attention ad you'll learn faster.
