Junior & Teen Irish Dance Classes

This video of our Jr/Teen Irish dance class at a recent performance.

Teen Irish Dancing is so inspirational.

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.

Teens in beginning Irish dance classes will learn the basic jig and reel steps and put them together in simple solo and ceili (group) dances. Intermediate level teen students will learn more complicated patterning and preparations for hard shoe.
