Join Niall O’Leary for a class in the traditional Irish form of step dancing! Dancers are taught technique, form, and style, as well as dances such as the reel and the jig. 

Note: This is a soft-shoe dance class, as Irish dancers start with soft shoes before moving onto hard shoe technique. Students should wear comfortable clothes, such as shorts or workout pants and a t-shirt. For footwear, sneakers, ballet shoes, or ghillies are best.
