Please note, I am currently taking some time off to spend with family and am not running weekly classes in Dublin at the moment. I will be teaching dancing workshops and masterclasses in Ireland, Europe, and the USA over the next few months and will resume regular classes in Dublin in 2019.
Please contact me (email@example.com) for information on upcoming workshops. Thanks and hope to see you soon! ~Mary Beth

Sean-Nós Dancing with Props (Broom, Barrel, Body)
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.
