Have you been dancing since you were wee? Or are you interested in trying something new? No matter your experience or background, we would love to welcome you to Irish Dance! We teach a mix of Festival and Feis dancing!
You can join us for fun in any of our classes, or you can perform with us! If you'd like to perform with us regular attendance at our classes is encouraged so you don't miss out on our performance dances.
Here at NSU Irish Dance, we'll be working regularly with Newcastle Irish Dance for community events, such as care home performances, volunteering with local groups, and the occasional flash mob! This will build up to the end of year show 'Treble on the Tyne' where you can show off what you've learnt throughout the year in the multi-night performance.
As well as classes and performances, we have a variety of socials lined up for you, including nights out, pizza and games nights, and some virtual events!
Our membership price includes all classes throughout the year, and show costumes.
All members will have access to a private YouTube channel where steps from each class will be uploaded.
