Kids Irish Dancing Classes for Ages 5-7

Wayne Rutledge

These are the wee shoes on the wee feet of American Dance Institute's Irish Dance for kids students, sitting in the 'Green Room' just before their St. Paddy's Day performance at Sagebook Senior Assisted Living in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood. Students from each of our non-competitive Irish dance classes, volunteer to perform at one or more local events each year. Our confidence building and community serving dance performances are no cost, fun and stress-free for parents.

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

Meet Your Kid's Irish Dance Instructors
I am definitely a fan!

My daughter has taken pre-Irish, and now Irish, and a creative dance class for a birthday party where we rented a Studio at ADI for a couple of hours. In all cases, I was impressed with the instructors...and they are great with the kids. The office is very helpful and responsive as well. The prices are reasonable.

From my experience with the classes we've taken, they focus on teaching the dance and not doing showy performances with fancy costumes (where your child is on stage for 3 minutes).  My daughter is enjoying dance and learning a lot. I'm definitely a fan.
