CHILDREN’S CLASSES

At the Cumascaigh School of Irish Dance, all classes are taught by a TCRG. We take children from 4-17 years at all levels of dancing (Beginners-Open Championships).

Dancers can start to learn the art of Irish Dancing at ANY age and we welcome students of all levels. We do take transfer students.

  • Lil’ Shamrocks: 4 year old class focused on rhythm basics, body control and Irish dancing basics. This class is FULL of energy and lots of fun!
  • Open Beginners: ages 5-10/10 and up: learn the basics of Irish dancing and get exposed to all the genres of traditional dance and music.
  • Advanced Beginner: builds on everything learned the first year, and with the teacher’s permission, beginner hard shoes.
  • Novice/Prizewinner (Competition Status)
  • Preliminary/Open Championships (Competition Status)
  • Performance Troupe/Ceili Team
