Irish Dance Lessons

The Yeates Academy is pleased to offer Irish dance lessons to students ranging in age from 5 through adult. Beginner classes are 1 hour and these students are taught 4 soft shoe dances, followed by 3 hard shoe dances. As with learning any new skill, a student's progression up through the levels of competition depends on the individual student -- number of times a student takes lessons per week, participation in competitions, dedication to individual practice, etc. Private & semi-private lessons are offered and specialized workshops are offered throughout the year in our Portland studio.

Sinead Yeates, TCRG, oversees the class structure and monitors each student's progress.
