Classes for Beginners and Experienced Dancers:


Wednesdays 4:00-4:45

Dancers are not required to take more than one class a week, but are welcome to! Classes begin the week of September 9th.

Worcester St. Patrick's Day Parade 2018

Description: This class is perfect for dancers looking to begin Irish dancing! During these classes, dancers will begin learn traditional Irish dancing soft shoe dances in the reel, light jig, and slip jig and hard shoe dances: heavy jig and hornpipe. As they learn these steps, dancers will develop the proper technique and style of the dances.  Returning dancers will begin to advance in their steps helping to advance them in their skill and feis placement. We love seeing how our returning dancers continue to advance every "step" of the way.
