Advanced Beginner-Primary-towards Inter
During these classes we will learn and dance Beginner and Primary dances of our school and start learning Primary and Intermediate dances. On Monday classes we will do hard shoes dances and on Wednesday classes soft shoe dances.
You can join these classes if you know at least some of the beginner soft shoe dances. With Primary level dancers we will practise Primary dances and start learning Intermediate dances. Primary classes are suitable for dancers who have danced a few years and are able to learn more challenging primary dance steps.
The class consists of warm up, technique practice and practising both soft and hard shoe steps, with special focus on the tricky parts of each dance. In addition there will be dance through of the dances as a whole.
This class is suitable for anyone from age 12 up who has never tried Irish dance before, no need for previous knowledge on the subject. During the classes we will learn the basic steps and technique and dance beginner level dances. You can also join these classes if you have only just started Irish dance or wish to practise steps and advance at a slower pace. At 18-19 we will do soft shoe dances only and at 19-20 hard shoes only. You can register for either or both these new beginner classes. The maximum number of participants will be 8.
For the classes you need to wear some suitable clothing for exercising, you can dance with your socks on or barefeet, there is no need for purchasing Irish soft shoes for beginner classes. It’s also good to have a water bottle with you during the classes.
Summer classes are open to anyone who knows the basics on Irish dance. The course contents will be decided later, but most likely something of the following:
After the warm up we’ll practise during the classes all kind of Irish dance related things, such as: Separate steps and steps in combinations, together and alone, and moving together and in groups in different formations. Perhaps some ceili and/or figure and/or show related things. Stamina and/or fitness workout is also a part of these classes. At the end of the class there will be brief stretching.
