Tampere - Class descriptions

  • 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.


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.

Advanced Beginners

The class is suitable for complete beginners as well as for those who have danced a little longer. 

We’ll go through basic technique, learn Beginner dances, and with those who have danced longer, we’ll start learning primary dances.

Primary / Intermediate

The class is suitable for dancers who have danced for several years, have strong basic technique, and who know some of the more challenging dances from Primary level.

In these classes, we practise dances for competitions and grade exams, as well as technique.


We learn céilí dances, traditional group dances, and practice their technique.

The class is suitable for dancers who are familiar with basic movements.
