Learning to Irish Dance is great physical exercise; students will gain beautiful posture, poise and positive self-esteem. Learning the intricate patterns of Irish choreography improves students memory, spacial reasoning, and promotes incredible teamwork. Taking an Irish dance class isn’t just about dancing, it’s about being a part of a multicultural community; knowledge and tolerance along with positive self-esteem and teamwork are the lasting gifts Irish dance gives its dancers, gifts that will improve the life of the students far beyond the classroom.
