KSID COVENTRY STUDIO
Our Beginner classes are the perfect way to start your child’s career in Irish dance. Each 60 minute class will include warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as activities that encourage imagination and dexterity. We spend time breaking down all of the basic techniques of Irish dance and work towards learning KSID’s beginner-level reel, light jig, and single-jig choreography.
Our beginners will show off what they have learned at KSID’s Spring Recital and at various other performances throughout the year.
