$132 ($122 members) · 60 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Experience the fun and precision of Irish step dancing in a spirited, comfortable group class. Learn the basics of Irish dance including promenades, glides, 7s, and begin a traditional soft shoe dance of reels, jigs, hop jigs, or slip jigs. At the end of the session, your class will have a chance to perform a short group dance at the showcase to show family & friends what you’ve accomplished and celebrate what you’ve learned together.


No experience necessary. Just come ready to have fun and get some exercise! Note: Irish step dancing includes a lot of jumping, leaping, and other high-impact activities.
