Our Irish dance program for adults began back in 2008, and in recent years has seen wonderful growth, with more than 30 adult students in our beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. It is a fun and fun-loving community of dancers ranging in age from 20s to 80s, some with previous dance experience and some who are learning to dance for the very first time. We’d love to welcome you to our classes! In these class sessions, we teach Irish step and ceili dancing.
Our beginner adult students pay $40 per month for an hour and fifteen minutes of instruction per week.
2019 Winter/Spring Open House Dates:
Monday, January 7, 6-7:15pm
Monday, April 1, 6-7:15pm
If you choose to join the class, the cost is $40 per month. If you decide not to join, the open house class is our free gift to you.
All beginner classes are held at the McTeggart Irish Dance Studio, 3519 Lansdowne Drive, Lexington, KY.
Preparing for Your First Class
You’re invited to attend the first class of each 3-month session. We welcome potential new students to join us for the first class of each session – January 7, 2019 and April 1, 2019. These days are both normal dance classes for our continuing students as well as “Open Houses” when we welcome potential new students to attend and give Irish dancing a try. You’ll experience an introductory dance class, meet other dance students, and finish with a Q&A time with your teacher so you can learn how to enroll in classes and ask any questions you might have.
What to wear: For your first class, you should wear comfortable, non-binding clothes for movement, and thick socks on your feet. If you own ballet slippers or jazz shoes, you are welcome to wear them, but there is no need to make a special purchase.
Want to continue dancing? Join a month-long class session: If you try your first class but don’t want to join classes, we’ll miss you, but no worries. The class is our gift to you. On the other hand, if you enjoy your very first class and want to enroll, we’ll give you all the information you need to enroll at the open house.
Note: We do not offer discounts or refunds if you have a planned or unexpected absences.
Invite your friends! We’ll be sharing information about these classes on Facebook and Instagram (@mcteggartky).
