VW IRISH DANCING

WHAT IS AN IRISH DANCING CLASS LIKE ?

Irish Dancing is artform/sport like no other.  Along with the infectious music and lively movements there is something to appeal to everyone.  Initially dancers are taught to dance in what we call 'light shoes' which look a bit like black ballet pumps.  Dancers begin to learn the basic moves and then progress on to their beginners dances which are called Reel, Light Jig, Single Jig and Slip Jig.  Then dancers move onto what we call the heavy dances which are performed in shoes similar to tap shoes but have fibre glass or wooden tips rather than metal.  The dancer will then move onto learning their Heavy Jig, Hornpipe and Traditional Set Dances.

Dancers are taught to warm up and stretch properly along with the techniques to perform the moves correctly.

WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR AND BRING TO CLASS?

No special shoes or clothing is required when you start at class.  Just wear something comfortable like leggings or shorts and make sure you bring a drink as it can be thirsty work. 

AM I EXPECTED TO TAKE PART IN COMPETITIONS OR SHOWS ?

There are no expectations that anyone has to take part in competitions or shows.  The options are there if people want to take part but it not the sole focus of the dancing classes.  The primary goal is to learn and have fun.
