WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?
This season we are located in Dance Ireland's venue. Address: Liberty Corner, Foley Street, Mountjoy, Dublin 1.
DO YOU DO DROP-IN CLASSES?
At the moment we do not, because our classes are based on a structure from A to Z and in order to guarantee quality, we can only offer courses. We will however, start teaching advanced classes on a drop-in basis. Stay tuned!
WHAT WILL I LEARN AND CAN I MISS A CLASS?
It all starts with the basic steps and technique (leading, following, spin, weight positioning) and then we move on to the turn patters. Depending on the speed of the class we can cover more ground!
Yes you can miss a class (However we advise you do not)! The course is actually 10 weeks, we offer 2 weeks additional classes for those who may have missed a class.
WHAT SHOES SHOULD I WEAR?
Definitely do not bring sneakers! Ideally some suede shoes or shoes that have a smooth surface. No pointy high heels for the ladies.
