Pre-Beginner and Beginner Classes

Class Description

Beginners and pre-beginners begin their Irish dance journey by learning the fundamentals and basic techniques in a fun and energetic environment. When they are confident in their foundational skills, dancers will learn the Irish Jig and Reel. In addition to dancing, this class incorporates stretching, balance/coordination exercises, and even learning how to count in Gaelic! We cannot wait for you to see the growth your young child will experience over the course of this first year.

Why take classes at Trinity Academy for Irish Dance? Trinity is an institution that teaches children a balanced approach to life through Irish Dance. Trinity’s tri-fold philosophy of solo dancing, team dancing, and performance sets us apart and creates an atmosphere that sets children up for success as they take their own journey and carve their own path.
