Irish dance is a great opportunity for your homeschool student to get some exercise and learn a new art form (arts and physical education all in one fun extracurricular activity!), learn about history and another culture, make friends, be part of a team, and get involved in the community.
Their homeschool Irish dance program is different – it is designed to be an all-around learning and growth experience.
• Students will learn traditional Irish step dancing, along with ceili dancing, team dancing, and some more modern show choreography.
• Each student in class will keep a “dance journal” to help them get the most out of each and every class. In their dance journal, they will write down the dance steps that they learn, what they can practice at home that week, and goals that they may have to work towards.
• Students will learn about the history of Irish dance, enhancing their knowledge and appreciation of where our unique art form comes from, along with a few words in Irish Gaelic.
• If they wish, students will have the opportunity to perform at events that Motor City Irish Dance hosts throughout the year. As they progress, they will have the opportunity to join the Motor City Irish Dance Company, where they will have even more exciting performance opportunities.
