Aroon Academy offers classes for all levels, ages 4 to adult.
No previous dance experience required.
We enroll new students all year long.
Beginners will start their training in soft shoes. They will learn beginner steps in the Reel, Light Jig, Single Jig, Slip Jig as well as the basics of Irish dance. As a dancer's skills increase, they will begin learning hard shoe if they wish. Length and frequency of classes depend on age and experience.
What to wear:
Students should wear an Aroon Academy t-shirt, black or dark coloured shorts, and white poodle socks. Beginners will be expected to purchase soft shoes but can wear slip-on dance shoes at the beginning. Please tie long hair back away from face. Bring a water bottle and a smile!
We charge per session. If you register for the entire season, a discount will be applied. Prospective dancers are welcome to come watch a class in action at any time. Trial classes are also available when scheduled with the instructor.
