Classes for Children
Currently, Kieran’s classes are designed for adults and older teens. For children's classes, Kieran recommends O’Riley Irish Dance. The program provides a fun and non-competitive approach to Irish dance for students ages 5-12, plus introductory sessions for 3 and 4-year-olds. Classes focus on the musicality and joy of Irish dancing, while building a repertoire of steps that focus on rhythm, timing, and technique. Students also learn traditional Irish social dances known as céilí and set dances. Instructor Jackie O’Riley has trained with Kieran, as well as other teachers, in traditional step dancing and sean-nós, and has participated in many of Kieran’s choreography and performance projects.
