The Lexington Irish Dancers offer several classes in Irish Step Dancing

Beginner classes are offered to children, 6 and over, and adults in the fall. The beginner’s classes will focus on the fundamental skills of soft-shoe dancing, as well as learning several ceili dances which are best described as “Irish square dancing” or social dancing.

Advanced step dancing is offered to those with at least 1 year of Irish step-dancing instruction. It will combine both soft and hard-shoe dancing as well as choreographies for public performances.

The above classes are taught by
