Adults Of Crossroads
Boost your fitness and your movement skills, while making new friends!
Our Adult classes are focused toward beginner to advanced beginner level, so if you have no experience or want to get back into Irish dance after some time away, this program is for you! The Adults of Crossroads is a great program for adults looking to do something that is fun, social and great exercise.
Classes include those with no experience to those with prior training. For beginner dancers, we will cover basic Irish dance moves and rhythms, proper technique, and show you how to stretch and strengthen your body for dance.
For dancers with a little more experience, exercises and drills will help you refine your technique, and additional dance options will be introduced. The class will work on both ceili dancing, which are dances performed as a group that focus on figures and partner work, as well as solo step dancing.
There’s no age limit on Irish dance! You can find videos online that feature dancers of all ages that enjoy Irish dance, and you can too! Each year, the class is tailored to the group of participants to ensure that the material we learn is suitable with options for every age and skill level..
