Irish dance is a healthy activity that provides great exercise as well as a variety of other lessons. Irish Dance can develop concentration, increase confidence, stage presence, coordination and discipline. Dancers learn to develop the qualities needed for successful teamwork while learning life lessons. Along with these important lessons, as dancers master their material, technique and move up through the levels, they will build a sense of accomplishment and confidence that will carry through in all aspects of their lives. Dancers will learn what it means to be motivated, goal-oriented and that hard work and fun go hand-in-hand, both on and off the dance floor.
