We are pleased to announce that Italia Performing Arts will be offering Irish Dance classes, on Monday evenings starting October 7th.
There is currently no specialized Irish dance school in the Winchester area. Students have to travel to Northern Virginia to take classes from a certified teacher. In response to requests from parents, Italia Performing Arts has asked Sarah Armstrong, a teacher with long experience, to teach these classes. She is not yet a certified teacher (TCRG) but hopes to take the exam soon, which will allow her to present her students at Irish dance competitions.
The following classes will be offered every Monday from October 7th:
- 5.15 pm – 6.15 pm: Beginners (age 5+)
- 6.30 pm – 7.30 pm: Intermediate (age 10+)
- 7.45 pm – 8.45 pm: Adult
The Intermediate class is for children who are experienced in some form of dance, not necessarily Irish. The normal minimum age is 10 but some younger students may be accepted at the teacher’s discretion. The Adult class is for beginners as well as more experienced dancers.
The price for each of these weekly classes is
$59/month. They may be combined with other Italia Performing Arts classes, and the normal multiple student and multiple class discounts apply – see our Prices and Payment page (also for current prices).
For more about this style of dance, see our Irish Dance page.
