Dancers progress to the Pre-Championship class once they are at an advanced primary/early intermediate level of technique. In this class, dancers will be challenged to master more intricate footwork, with the emphasis of training focusing on improving technique, turnout, crossover, stamina, flexibility and strength through a higher level of drills and skills. Dancers will incorporate these new skills into their softshoe solo dances along with a mix of modern and traditional ceili dances for feis, performance choreography and exams.
The Championship Class covers all areas of traditional and modern Irish dancing: softshoe, hardshoe, ceili dancing, examination preparation and performance choreography. This class is specifically designed for our top-level dancers and runs several times a week to ensure dancers can cover all areas of technique, drills, skills, ankle strength, core stability, stamina and flexibility.
