The aim of beginners classes is to introduce dancers to the fundamental skills of Irish Dance in a fun, engaging way.

Beginners classes are held weekly for half an hour and dancers learn the basic reel, soft-shoe jig and first hard-shoe dance. By the end of their first year, most beginners will be able to perform at their first competition (feis).

Separate beginners classes for boys are also available.

Age: From 3 years upwards
