SHINE TROUPE

from 200.00

FALL SESSION

SHINE TROUPE offered on:
TUESDAYS 4:30-5:45

Our Shine Troupe advanced beginner class is perfect for first through third grade dancers. Dancers in this class may be brand new to KSID, or existing Kelly Irish Dancers continuing their beginner journey in Irish Dance with us. Each 75 minute class includes warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as dance drills focused on Irish dance posture and technique. Class is primarily focused on soft shoe choreography. Dancers will learn our advanced beginner-level reels, light jigs, and single jig, as well as basic Ceili formations. Part of each class time will include an introduction to basic hard shoe rhythms and techniques. Mastery of these steps may take your dancer a few years to fully comprehend. That is absolutely ok and to be expected with our beginner dancers! Our Shine Troupe dancers are encouraged to participate in our holiday performance, Merry & Bright, as well as our year end showcase, The KSID Spring Recital. Participation of course is not required. A hard shoe will routine will be performed in our Spring recital only.

SHINE TROUPE dancers are welcome to take additional classes. For dancers interested in additional class time we recommend taking a Pink Troupe class or join us on Wednesdays 4:30-5:30 for an entire class of hard shoe.
