Lexington Irish dance classes with Bluegrass Ceili AcademyIt’s a new year and there are plenty of new resolutions out there — here’s one you can stick with: giving our Lexington Irish dance classes a try in 2017! With a variety of different classes to try, we’re sure you’ll find something to stick with.

Want to take weekly classes?  Register through Lexington Parks & Recreation for our super fun, super affordable spring session at Artworks at the Carver School. No previous dance experience necessary, however students with previous dance or Irish dance experience are welcome.

  • Beginning January 30, sign up for our 6 p.m. Children’s Irish Dance class or our 7 p.m. Adult Irish Dance class. Registration is open now — look for our classes under “Cultural Arts” on the Parks & Rec website.

Want to try our free monthly classes? As a way to give back to our community, we offer our Lexington Irish dance classes free each month at the Spiders Well at McCarthy’s Irish bar downtown.

  • You don’t need dancing shoes, you just need yourself! Join us for a FREE class every second Wednesday of the month — our next class is January 11 from 7 to 8:30 pm.  It’s your chance to try a free class with us in a fun, festive atmosphere!

So whether you’re giving something new a try … or coming back to something old … 2017 is the year to check out Bluegrass Ceili Academy!

What will you learn in our Lexington Irish dance classes?

Each of our Lexington Irish dance classes — whether weekly or monthly —  focuses on the basic techniques of Irish dance, with an emphasis on group (ceili) dancing. In our Artworks classes, specific instruction includes standard ceili dances and original choreographies for performance.
