Beginner Irish Dance Classes (Non-Competitive)!
O'Riley Irish Dance is a one-of-a-kind, non-competitive Irish dance program, now in its 13th year.
The classes emphasize dancing as a joyful, social activity rather than a competitive one.
Although each class addresses developing rhythm, timing, and technique, first and foremost the emphasis is on musicality: understanding the connection between music and dance, developing a listening ear, and trying to keep the music in the dancing.
Students learn a mix of traditional step dancing, sean-nós dance, and set dancing, as well as some soft shoe and ceili dancing.
Most importantly, Jackie is trying to pass onto her dancers not just the steps themselves, but the joy and vitality of carrying on this living tradition.
In our Beginner levels, join us as we explore a beginner repertoire of jigs and reels.
New students welcome throughout the semester.
