Classes 2017

Adult Irish Dance Classes – Spring 2017


The 2017 Spring Term classes begin soon. Please find all details below. This is a 12-week term commencing on the 17th & 18th of January and finishing on the 4th & 5thof April.

Unfortunately I have to miss the odd class because I will be touring of my production Lïnger in March. I may do workshops to make up for these weeks, but that will be separate from our normal scheduled classes and will be announced closer to the time. I will send an email with details about the tour shortly, and hopefully you will be able to come and see your teacher dance.

There are no classes on the following dates:

7th 8th 14th 15th & 29th March

Please register by replying to me by email stating what you would like to sign up for.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and happy new year!

Class Description


This is an advanced/professional level class. The class pace is rapid and material will be difficult. I will focus on both professional standard show numbers as well as feis material at championship level.

Intermediate Level 2

This will suit the advanced dancers as well as those who are intermediate level and wish to be challenged in preparation for the advanced class. The material won’t always be advanced, but advanced motifs will be taught in isolation. The class will move relatively quickly.

Intermediate Level 1

This class is a natural follow-on from beginners, with more of a focus on mastering the more primary-level material. The class will also be suitable for some Intermediate Level 2 dancers who would like a 2nd class and who want to work on technique as well as ensuring they have a full complement of the standard dances.


This class will be aimed at absolute beginners and will move slowly. The objective will be to master the Beginners reel, jig, single jig and slip jig, as well as the Hard Reel, time permitting. Hard shoe dancing will be introduced from the get go. This class is suitable for dancers who have attended beginner’s classes in the past and who feel they are not yet ready to proceed in to Intermediate Level 1.
