Primary School Classes

The Attridge Academy Of Irish Dance is proud to be associated and teaching in many primary schools throughout Cork city. In these schools, Irish dancing is regarded as part of the school curriculum and each student gets the opportunity to learn the steps and céilí dances of our Irish culture. Students get to participate in an annual school feis, various school concerts and open days. Also, the highlight of the school dancing year is the “kids fun céilí”.

Private After School Classes

Many students enjoy their “rince” time so much in school, that they often join a private class after school hours. Here the dancers achieve the highest standards possible. They learn to appreciate their rich culture and eventually, when they are older, they also get the opportunity to travel and perform with their dancing.
