Dancers who are selected to join this grouping are required to purchase the KSID school dress.
Each Mini Company class includes warm-up, cool-downs, and stretching exercises as well as dance drills focused on Irish dance posture and technique, with an emphasis on core strength and injury prevention. Class is split between soft & hard shoe dancing, teaching both competitive and performance based choreography. We look forward to showcasing our Mini Company progress in our holiday performance, Merry & Bright, as well as our year end showcase, The KSID Spring Recital. Mini Company dancers are eligible to participate in Irish Dance competitions, the feis as well as additional performance opportunities offered, as available, throughout the year, including our upcoming Dancing in Disney performance. Participation in Irish Dance competitions is not required. Participation in Merry & Bright and our Spring recital is required for all Mini Company dancers.
Mini Company dancers are encouraged to take at minimum one additional class per week and may choose from the following class options. Offerings vary with each dance season.
