An international competitive presence within the ranks of Irish dance, Celtic Steps School of Irish Dance is a premier learning institution for all of the Emerald Isle's expressive dance forms. With sessions limited to 25 lithe lads or lassies, Celtic Steps emphasizes individual step and technique training, along with some team dances and group work. Adults can retrain tired toes or give winter-weary stems a workout to the tune of guitar, pipe, and bodhrán-driven dance music. Irish dance is a great way to introduce children to the world of rhythm and ensuring that they are able to deftly stamp out renegade sparklers with arms held gracefully by their sides.
