Tampere - Class descriptions

Class names correspond to competition levels.
The following guidelines can be used to help find the right class(es).
  • Competitive dancers & dancers doing Grade Exams: It is highly recommended that competitive dancers attend classes at all levels in which they have dances in. Dancers are required to attend weekly classes regularly, as well as TCRG workshops organized by the dance school, in order to obtain a competition permit.


  • Non-competitive dancers are welcome for classes at all levels, and their transition from one level to another is guided by the development of the technique required in Irish dancing as well as the learning the choreographies in the right way.

Competing in our dance school is completely voluntary.

Beginners / Advanced Beginners / Primary

Beginners, advanced beginners and primary level classes focus on dances of all levels according to the participants. Whether you are a complete beginner or already mastering the basics, this class is for you.

During the term, we learn all beginner level dances with soft shoes and at least one dance with hard shoes.

Intermediate (free practice)

The intermediate level free practice classes are intended for dancers who are able to practice dances of the required level on their own.

Short course, child + adult (for children aged 3-5)

In the children’s classes, we practise Irish dance in a fun and relaxed way. 

The classes include learning basic technique, practising steps, and relaxing/stretching at the end of the class, as well as learning together.

Teaching is focused on supporting and encouraging children’s learning.
