Irish dancing provides a fantastic cardiovascular workout that will help you build fitness, increase your flexibility, and have fun while learning new steps. Classes at all levels will focus on technique and choreography in both the light and heavy shoes.
For people who are new to Irish dancing, or for people who have danced in mainly in light shoes, without much experience in heavies.
For people who know the basic light dances (reel, jig, slip jig, single jig) jig) and basic heavies (heavy jig, hornpipe).
For people who have danced up to Méan Grad / Ard Grad (Prizewinner/Championship level) in competition, or have experience in performance/troupe work.
Please contact us if you are unsure of which class to register for.
For Irish dancing, we use both light shoes (also called poms or ghillies) and heavy/hard shoes in all classes, including Beginners.
Irish dancing shoes can be purchased at Fays Dance Shoes (Upper Dorset St, Dublin 1) or Dance World (various locations).
