Beginning Irish Dance
Beginning Irish dance students from the ages of 8 to 13 are considered “Unders” because they are under the age of 14.
The Beginner Irish dance class is designed for beginning students ages 8 – 13. Beginning classes are held Saturdays from 10am – 11am. Cost is $25 per month, due the 1st Saturday of the month.
Class consists of one hour of Irish dance instruction. Students learn basic technique and form through drills and a combination of traditional and contemporary choreography.
Beginner “Unders” really work hard in class, but also get to play a bit. We enjoy a few games here and there and field trips to other classes where we show off what we’re learning or we watch other dancers incorporate the movements we’ve just learned into a dance.
What to expect
Different personalities shine in this class. From the quiet and more reserved, to the boisterous, we share our strengths and help each other overcome our weaknesses. Students move from this class to the Adult or Prep class as they advance in technique.
All students should wear something comfortable to dance in. Teachers need to see your ankles and kness to ensure correct posture and form. Most of our Irish dancers wear leggins or tights; shorts, skirts, or cutoff sweats; and a t-shirt. No shirts that show the midriff, low cut shirts, or booty shorts will be permitted in class.
Students are expected to attend classes, but if a student is ill, please stay home. We like healthy dancers! Students are expected to be on time for class. Please arrive early to put on shoes and chat before class begins. If a student is not going to be in attendance, please send your teacher an email. We will always do our best to accommodate illness, school plays, sports tourneys, etc. if we are made aware of the situation ahead of time.
Payments are due the 1st Saturday of the month. If your payment is late, a $5 charge will be added. Students who do not pay by the 3rd Saturday of the month will not be eligible to attend classes until payment, including any late fee, is paid. We accept Cash & Checks. If you would like to make a payment by credit card, please speak with the Treasurer. Payments will be accepted in person or by mail. To mail your payment, please include the student name on the check and mail to:
