Pre-Irish Classes Specially Designed for Ages 3 to 5

A magical & unique 6 week class session for ages 3 to 5 that leads up to a fun performance for family!

Innovation, imagination, creativity galore -- our Pre-Irish classes are like no others!

Pre-Irish is Non-Stop Fun!

We utilize a unique class structure that helps children learn how to be successful in a classroom environment, to interact positively with classmates and teachers, and to experience a dynamic blend of physical, mental, and musical activities. Students learn basic Irish dancing movements and technique, and we practice numbers (including counting to ten in Irish!), letters, shapes, colors, and musical exercises. Students gain balance and coordination, switching between exciting activities and engaging class props. We build confidence with our encouraging teaching style, so our students bounce out of each class smiling and excited for next time!


We finish by performing a special routine in costume at our last class just for our families! Pre-Irish dancers will also receive an adorable Irish dance keepsake item!


Performing a Special Routine

Our Pre-Irish students get to learn a special dance routine with props that they get an opportunity to perform for family at their final class! They'll even get a fun Pre-Irish costume to dance in! It's possibly the cutest thing you'll see all year, and it's such a valuable experience for young kids. Pre-Irish is designed to be an encouraging and supportive experience for little dancers at each and every moment.

If you haven't watched this movie yet, it's a must-see for you and your little one!

It will have your little one dancing nonstop!

Featuring an original score from Grammy Award winning composer Bill Whelan, it stars an impressive Irish voice cast including Pierce Brosnan, John Kavanagh, Brendan Gleeson and Aisling Bea. Faithful to its roots, it also features the dancers’ incredible craft and skill, by utilising motion capture of their performances to create the animated dancing in the film. 

Riverdance: The Animated Adventure follows an Irish boy named Keegan (Sam Hardy) and a Spanish girl named Moya (Hannah Herman Cortes) as they journey into the mythical world of the legendary Megaloceros Giganteus, who teach them to appreciate Riverdance as a celebration of life. The film also stars Lilly Singh, Jermaine Fowler and Pauline McLynn and features a brand-new single by Ireland’s musical sensation, Lyra.
