Our Silver Troupe class is perfect for our eighth through twelfth grade dancers. Each 2 hour 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 Silver Troupe talents in our holiday performance, Merry & Bright, as well as our year end showcase, The KSID Spring Recital. Silver Troupe 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 any of these events are not required but highly encouraged for all Silver Troupe teammates.
SILVER TROUPE dancers interested in additional class time we recommend taking any of the following class options. Additional class offerings vary with each dance season.
