Can your child get jiggy with it? Check out the Irish Dance Class coming to Dawsonville
Irish Dance

Tir Na Tralee School of Irish Dance will be offering an Irish Dance class at Rock Creek Sports Complex starting on Saturday, Aug. 14 until the performance date of Nov. 13. 

Classes are offered from ages three through students in the eighth grade. In the “Jiggy Tots” group, ages 3-6 will experience a class that will “develop motor skills, coordination, and movement vocabulary.” That class will be held from 9-9:45 a.m. Saturday mornings. 

The other two classes will be split from kindergarteners through third grade and fourth grade through eighth grade. This class will introduce students to the basics of Irish step dancing and be looked at more as an introductory class. Tir Na Tralee Director and Owner Mary Hayes Ernst plans to offer a class in the spring for students eager to continue learning Irish dance. 

There is a $25 registration fee paid once a year, along with $165 per Jiggy Tot and $175 for all other dancers for the twelve week class. All classes come with a t-shirt.
