We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially  meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee.  Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.

Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations.  ADI has excelled in solving that misery.  I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.  

Thanks for asking,

Dennis Landmesser

About Our Irish Dance Classes

Irish dancing is fun, energetic, and highly aerobic. 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.

Class Attire

Comfortable dance attire. Ghillies for ladies and jazz shoes for men.
