Classes for Prizewinner & Champion dancers starting August 31st
Company classes include warm-ups and dance drills focused on Irish dance posture and technique. Class time is split between soft & hard shoe dancing, teaching both competitive and performance based choreography.
Dancers are assigned by KSID to our Avoca or Liffey Company groups. The minimum Avoca + Liffey Company commitment is 4 hours per week. Dancers unable to meet the 4-hr minimum are encouraged to join our Boyne Company.
Company Dancers are expected to perform in Merry & Bright, as well as our year end showcase, The KSID Spring Recital. Company dancers are eligible to participate in CLRG dance competitions, as well as additional performance opportunities offered, as available, throughout the year. Performance participation priority is given to Company dancers. Additional weekly class time is recommended to all dancers.
Did you know Avoca, Boyne, and Liffey are names of rivers in Ireland? Our top classes are named after Irish rivers in homage to Riverdance the Show.
