Teen Irish Dancing is so inspirational.

Teen Irish dancing is 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.

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.

Non-Competitive Teen Irish Dancing Classes

You're looking for non-competitive Teen Irish dancing classes, but how do you find a good one? What questions do you ask?  Here is some advice. 

  • Look for non-competitive Teen Irish dancing classes where everyone is friendly, there is no snickering and your child will always feel welcome.
  • Look for a class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child.
  • Look for a teen Irish dance studio with specially designed 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect their feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven to bid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Look for accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason. Look for clean, bright sunlit studios.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert Irish dance teachers who know how to give your child personalized attention so they will progress faster.
