You do not need to be Irish to enjoy this style of dance. Irish Dancing has grown to be a highly technical sport which offers so many rewards in terms of personal growth, physical literacy and mental resilience. Halifax’s Rising Tide Irish Dance Academy offers some of the best Irish dance classes in Atlantic Canada. These classes are delivered in a top dance studio facility with exemplary coaching with years of experience dancing, competing, and teaching. With the proven ability to stretch each dancer to reach their full potential, coaches help students grow through focused attention, specific feedback, and dance steps suited to each dancer’s style.
With two core dance programs, Children’s & Competitive and Adults, there are Irish dance classes for toddlers, beginners, kids and adults. Each program focuses on providing a fun and energetic introduction to the very basics of Irish dance. As your child progresses, they will build upon these basics and develop the advanced dance skills required to competitive at a championship level.
New dancers are welcome at any time, and with a unique 3FOR2 trial, you can try out three dance classes for the price of two drop-ins. This is a great way to introduce your child to Irish Dance before you commit.
Classes run at their regularly scheduled time September–June and at adjusted times during summer. See full schedule here.
