Irish dancing provides a fantastic cardiovascular workout that will help you build fitness, increase your flexibility, and have fun while learning new steps. Classes at all levels will focus on technique and choreography in both the light and heavy shoes.

Beginner

For people who are new to Irish dancing, or for people who have danced in light shoes, but not in heavies.

Improver

For people who know the basic light dances (reel, jig, slip jig, single jig) and have done some basic steps in the heavies (jig, hornpipe, St. Patrick’s Day).

Advanced

For those who have danced at Méan Grad/Ard Grad level (Prize winner/Championship) in both lights and heavies.

Please contact us if you are unsure of which class to register for.

Shoes

It is not 100% necessary to buy shoes; however, having the correct form of footwear is always beneficial in dancing classes.

For Irish dancing, we use both light shoes (also called poms or ghillies) and heavy/hard shoes in all classes, including Beginners.

If you do not have dancing shoes, athletic shoes (trainers/runners) can be worn initially.

Irish dancing shoes can be purchased at Fays Dance Shoes (Upper Dorset St, Dublin 1) or Dance World (various locations).
