Intermediate or Prep Irish Dance Class
Irish dance students that are preparing to join the Performing Group or are intermediate dancers will find a fun home in the Prep class.
Classes are for advanced students 8 and up. Students join class by teacher approval. Prep classes are held Saturdays from 10am – 11:30am. Cost is $30 per month, due the 1st Saturday of the month.
Class consists of 1 1/2 hours of Irish dance instruction. Students learn advanced technique and form through drills and a combination of traditional and contemporary choreography.
What to expect
The Prep, or preparatory class, is a fun mix of people from different walks of life. Students in this class vary in age and are at an advanced level. The purpose of the class is to prepare students to join the Performing group by polishing choreography and stage prescence. Students will have opportunities to perform if they wish. Performance is not required.
Ghillies/soft shoes and jig/hard shoes required.
If you would like to participate in performances, the following is required:
- Kilt in All Ireland tartan, available exclusively at Sportkilt. You must choose the 18″ length and sewn down pleat option. Lengths other than 18″ must be approved by teacher.
- Black V-neck, half sleeve shirt available at Down East Outfitters online or in stores.
- Black opaque tights.
- Hard shoes and/or ghillies.
- White long-sleeved dress shirt.
- Black slacks, any dress trousers will do.
- Black socks.
- Black belt, basic buckle.
- Hard shoes and/or reel shoes.
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.

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.
