Soft Shoe is known as the "ballet of Irish dance" and is a light but athletic dance performed in shoes called "ghillies." This class provides the basic technique for all forms of Irish dance. It will introduce and prepare students for all other class options. 



Teams class prepares students for both performance routines and team competitions. This class instills a strong sense of teamwork and confidence on stage.


This class builds on the same basics as learned in Soft Shoe, but is performed in "Hard Shoes" and is what most people associate with clogging or tap. Its strong rhythms & steady beat define this style.


For dancers 16 & over with little-to-no Irish dance experience. This class will provide both Soft & Hard Shoe education.


For dancers 3-5 years old. We always have at least 2 teachers in each preschool class, and take a max of 5 dancers at a time to ensure that your little one gets personal, loving instruction
