Pre-Irish Dance Classes for Kids

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.

In addition to Irish Dance Classes for Kids, American Dance Institute also offers Irish dancing for adults, teen Irish dancing,  kids Irish dance classes for ages 8-12.

"Enroll your children in the American Dance Institute and relax. "


"It was here, at the American Dance Institute, that we, as parents, realized that we could relax and enjoy watching the growth of my daughter's dance skills. She was never made to feel that she wasn't good enough. She was always excited to come, every time. I think it is partially due to the culture here which is welcoming, comfortable and has an inviting atmosphere for children of all ages, genders, for adults and parents, everybody. It is like a neighborhood community school."

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.
