It brings us great joy to offer an eight-week term in online classes in Irish arts and culture, beginning April 13 and running through June 4, led by our wonderful core of Irish Arts Center teaching artists.

We are delighted to provide online learning and engagement experiences for everyone — from anywhere! — with 26 classes in music (including singing, fiddle, mandolin, harp, tin whistle, and bodhrán); step dance; Irish language; playwriting; and storytelling.

Building friendships and community through shared learning experiences has been core to our mission since 1972 so we are thrilled to be able to sustain our education program online.

Classes are available for beginners as well as more advanced students, and are being taught on the Zoom platform, a free, widely used, and easy to download application that is great for online learning.
