BEGINNERS ARE CHILDREN NEW TO IRISH DANCING WHO ARE AT LEAST 4 YEARS OLD BY AUGUST 1.
Learning Irish dancing is a progression.
Beginners start by learning the basics of Irish dancing – posture, foot placement, timing, “threes” and “sevens”. With this solid foundation, each year adds intricacies in footwork, rhythms and figure dancing.
Practice and class attendance play important roles in this progression.
