Classes

Below are the course offering for fall and spring.  We at the Academy feel every class should give students a solid foundation and skill set.  Your child will receive a well -rounded Irish dance education. Proper form and technique are taught in every class to every student to prepare them to compete successfully.  Classes are held at our studio located in Omaha at the Omaha Irish Cultural Center -2436 South 120th Street (just north of 120th and Center);  in Lincoln at Club Kicks located at 4820 Rent Worth Drive and in Kansas City at 3101 Martway in Mission, KS.

Adult Step and Ceili

An introductory class teaching basic Irish dance steps and ceili dances (group dances) . The objective is to have fun and get a fair amount of exercise. Parents of Irish dance students are encouraged to join this class. The more Irish dance you know as a parent, the better “dance parent” you can be to your competing child. Plus it’s just a whole lot of fun!  Classes are held at our studio located in Omaha.  Inquire for prices and times.

Private lessons

Private lessons provide an opportunity for a student to work on specific areas they need extra assistance with. They run for 1 hour in length and cost $35/hour. If there is more than one student involved additional fees will apply. Travel charges apply if the lesson is provided in home or at a location other than one of our studios and vary by distance.
