Now is the time to try our Lexington Irish dance classes where you’ll find fun, affordable instruction with a certified teacher for both children and adults. Classes are offered in partnership with Artworks at the Carver School, a community cultural arts program in downtown Lexington.

What are our Lexington Irish dance classes like? We focus these dance classes on group choreography — known as ceili dancing — for fun, for performance and for competition.

Registration for 2017-2018 classes will begin in August 23, 2017 at noon via the Lexington Parks and Recreation website.

New this year!  We’re adding a third class, Irish Dance Beginners, on Wednesday evenings.  For those with no experience who want to give Irish dance classes in Lexington a try… or those who can’t make the Monday class due to schedule conflicts.
