SPARKLE TROUPE class are offered on:
class times perfect for dancers in grades K-3rd
Dancers in our Sparkle Troupe beginner classes may be brand new to KSID, or existing Kelly Irish Dancers continuing their beginner journey in Irish Dance with us. Each 60 minute class includes warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as dance drills focused on Irish dance posture and technique. Beginner dancers will learn our beginner-level reel, light jig, and single jig choreography, as well as basic Ceili formations. Mastery of these steps may take your dancer a few years to fully comprehend; that is absolutely ok and to be expected with our younger beginners! You will find as your dancer grows up with KSID, so will their dance skills! Our beginner 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. New dancers are welcome to try and join any open beginner class at any point throughout our dance year.
SPARKLE TROUPE dancers interested in additional class time we recommend taking an additional Sparkle Troupe class.
