Let your child experience the history and culture of Ireland. Classes are taught by sister duo, Catie and Hali from Thorne Academy of Irish Dance. Our fall classes are open to all skill levels. Parents are encouraged to drop off students for class at the side entrance of the JPCC. Information about purchasing formal Irish Dancing Gillies (shoes) and traditional school costumes will be given to new students.
Class size is limited to 12 dancers so we can safely follow social distancing protocol. Class will be held inside the building. Face masks are required when we are inside. Dancers may remove their masks once they are escorted to their assigned dancing spots. Dancers must dress in comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle, sneakers and dancing shoes.
Class will be divided into smaller groups based on skill level once registrations are complete.
Beginner-Bun Grad B
New and returning dancers who are still mastering their steps. We will begin to learn hard shoe dances in weeks 4-8!
Pre-Open Level-Bun Grad C
