The Crossroads Academy is a teacher-recommended, accelerated program for dancers starting age 8 to adult who successfully completes an intro level class. Dancers in this program have a vested interest in up-leveling their training to a more focused, challenging classroom atmosphere.
Academy instructors provide dancers with challenging skills, steps, and techniques to be the best they can be and nurture them in their goals with Irish dance. Our mission is to create an atmosphere of healthy competition that pushes dancers to a new skill level. We aim to be honest with dancers about their abilities and offer options for those willing to work hard and commit.
This program works on our balance of skill, teamwork, and goals within the class. Students are recommended to a class that best fits their demonstrated skills and technique (or what they have achieved through competition) as well as being integrated with those who share the same goals and interests. This allows dancers to be more honest with themselves and understand what they are capable of.
