About This Activity

Description

This activity has been cancelled.

Fun, fitness, & cultural tradition all at once! Kids will experience Irish céilí dancing (a social style of dance) & Irish step dancing (performance style) while they discover a form of music that they rarely hear on the radio. Experience proper Irish Dance foot positioning, posture, counting music, stretching, hop skips, the side step, and their first jig step. Exposure to Irish Dance brings a focus on extending attention spans, increased stamina, & cultural awareness. A great way to increase cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone, flexibility, coordination, balance, strength & learn a few Gaelic words too! Eireann go Brach!
