Irish Dance Fall Semester Begins in September

We have had an amazing summer workshop session of Irish dance at Rinceoiri Don Spraoi Irish Dancers! We really worked our butts off at #BensKickButtGym and got a few jig tricks under our belts. We said some sad goodbyes to a few amazing people who are heading off to college. On the flip side, we enjoyed seeing our summer dancers who make it only during breaks from college or on vacation; like our Gingersnap who comes to dance with us from Germany. We’ll miss you all!

We are super excited to welcome everyone back for Fall and can’t wait to meet the new dancers joining our Rinceoiri family!

If you have never danced Irish before, the Intro class is for you. The class is for ages 8 and up (including adults) and lasts for one month. Afterwards you will move into a Beginner class.

Danced a few reels and jigs before? Maybe you’ve taken a break for several months (or years)? Check out our Beginner classes as a refresher course.

If you’ve competed at Novice or above previously, talk to our head teacher. The Prep class is the place to learn our repertoire and style, while the Performing Group will be where you’ll show off your hard work.

New Irish Dance classes begin Saturday, April 14

Have you ever wanted to dance an Irish Jig, or Reel for that matter?

Rinceoiri Don Spraoi Irish Dancers will be holding an “Intro to Irish Dance” class this month. Classes are for new students with no prior Irish dance experience, ages 8 and up. This class includes Adults! Students move to the regular Beginner class after the first month of Intro is completed.

Class consists of 30 minutes of Irish dance instruction. Students learn the most basic technique and form through drills and basic choreography.

Intro classes are held Saturdays starting April 14, from 11am – 11:30am.
Cost is $20 for the month of April.

Come join us in learning Irish dance in a fun environment!

The new Irish dance season in Utah begins!

It gets a bit crazy around here in September. Our year is similar to the school year, with regular classes taking a bit of a hiatus during the summer and beginning once again in September. With classes now fully in swing, we can take a tiny breather and post something.

We had a number of performances during the the past few months. Who knew Irish dance would be this popular in Utah over the summer? Our Performers were busy dancing every week, sometimes multiple times a week, and loving every minute of it.

We’re excited to add 10 new dancers to the Performing group. Each one brings something great to our Irish dance family!

We’re also excited about our new Siofra & Shamrock classes. We normally hold a class for younger dancers from January through St. Patrick’s Day, but thought we’d try out a couple of classes starting in September. What can I say? They’re cute as can be!

The Beginner classes, both the Adult and the Under 14, are amazing their teachers with their hard work and joy in dancing. It’s fun to teach these classes because of their enthusiasm!

Last, but certainly not least, our Prep class has really stepped it up! It’s great to see them learn a dance so quickly and to adapt to hardshoe with relative ease. It’s hard work, but they all seem up to the challenge. We see smiles on faces and sweat on brows as students leave classes.  Awesome!
