Irish dancing classes

We offer classes for Irish dancers of all ages and experience. Whether you're dancing to have fun, to keep fit or to compete, our small class sizes allow our teachers to nurture the progress of every dancer individually. 


Throughout the year, dancers have the choice to compete in State and National Championships as well as local competitions. However, for those not interested in competing, classes still offer a great way to build confidence, focus, fitness, strength, and friendships in a fun and supportive environment and our annual Hall School Christmas Feis gives all of our dancers the opportunity to show family and friends what they have achieved throughout the year in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Weekly classes for our beginner, intermediate, advanced and adult dancers are held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. For our younger dancers, the Jump'n'Jig classes are held every Saturday morning. Private classes can also be booked on a weekly basis.

Beginner classes offer an introduction to Irish dance for school aged children, 5 years and up, who are just beginning Irish dancing for the first time. Beginner dancers will start learning the basic steps and progress to learning soft shoe dances such as reels and jigs. As their skills and confidence continue to develop, beginner dancers will then start to learn hard shoe dances.

Intermediat & Advanced Classes

Our intermediate and advanced classes are ideal for dancers looking for more of a challenge. Students will build on what they learnt as beginners, learning faster, more difficult and intricate footwork at a higher standard for both soft shoe and hard shoe dances.


Dancers who have an interest in taking exams and participating in competitions will be able to use class time to prepare and have the opportunity to perform at community events.


Intermediate and advanced classes run for 60 to 120 minutes with the option to have additional private lessons.

Adult Classes

Adult Classes

Adult classes are for anyone over 16 years who is new to Irish dancing or anyone making a comeback and looking for a fun and relaxed atmosphere to stay fit and brush up their dancing skills. No experience is needed for these classes and all fitness levels are welcome.


Classes run for 60 to 90 minutes.
