Please note, I am currently on sabbatical this autumn to spend time with family; for this reason, I will not be running weekly classes in September/October 2018.
I will be running workshops in different locations throughout the year, please keep an eye on our website for classes in your area!
Weekly classes in Dublin will resume in 2019. Thank you for your interest!

It is not necessary to buy shoes; however, having the correct form of footwear is always beneficial in dancing classes.
For Irish dancing, we use both light shoes (also called poms or ghillies) and heavy/hard shoes.
For Beginners, jazz/ballet shoes or runners (athletic shoes) may be worn.
For Improvers / Intermediate/Advanced, dancers should have both light and heavy shoes.
Shoes can be purchased at Talbot Irish Dance Centre (63 Talbot St, Dublin 1), Fays Dance Shoes (Upper Dorset St, Dublin 1), or Dance World (various locations).
For sean-nós dancing, any shoe with a hard sole and low heel will do.
Some dancers prefer to wear set dancing shoes (hard leather soles) or tap shoes (steel pieces on the heels and toes). It's also possible to attach taps to a pair of shoes that you may already own.
Please do not wear runners, high heels, flats, or Irish dancing shoes (hard shoes), as these are unsuitable for sean-nós dancing.
