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 mainly in light shoes, without much experience in heavies.

Intermediate

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

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

Shoes

Although it is not 100% necessary to buy shoes, we do encourage you to do so – 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.

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

It’s also a good idea to check your local charity shop, Facebook Marketplace, DoneDeal.ie, and Adverts.ie for second-hand shoes
