Classes for dancers ages 5.5-7 starting August 31st
Classes for dancers ages 5.5-7 starting October 3rd
Our beginner (aka Sparkle Troupe) classes are perfect for dancers ages 5.5 to 7 in grades K thru 2nd. Each 50 minute class includes warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as dance drills focused on Irish dance posture and technique. Beginner dancers learn our beginner-level reels, 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! 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. Sparkle troupe dancers are also welcome to participate in Irish Dance competitions too!
New dancers are welcome to try and join any open beginner class at any point throughout our dance year.
All KSID policies must be read and acknowledged digitally through our online registration form. Completed registration includes: submitted registration form, payment of annual registration fee, and payment of Fall tuition.
