Shoes clack on a sprung wooden floor as a dozen pointed toes hop in time to flute and fiddle. These shoes belong to the talented feet of children participating in traditional Irish dance classes at Mayer School of Irish Dance. During lessons, instructors focus on performance quality technique to help perfect posture, taps, and kicks. Classes range in skill level from new beginners to Pre-Oireachtas, which is by invitation only. For a more social style of dancing, Mayer School also runs Irish set dance classes, during which partners complete intricate patterns to mimic the way sheep dance on Irish hillsides.
