We are delighted to have launched new Irish dancing classes in Finland. These classes are presented through a hybrid model of online and studio classes. Monthly lessons are held via zoom where the students can attend from home or else join other dancers in the studio and follow the course on screen. Regular workshops are also held throughout the year in Helsinki/Espoo. The next set of classes/workshops will take place in June 2022.
These classes will mark the start of regular classes and workshops that will be held throughout the year in Finland (with dancers invited to take part in workshops in Ireland too). Classes will be taught Mark Hennessey TCRG who is a registered teacher with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha. Dancers who attend regular classes will be eligible to complete grading exams as well as take part in Feiseanna (Irish dancing competitions) around Europe and worldwide.
Dancers who wish to take classes as a casual hobby or fun/fitness as well as those wishing to compete and to challenge themselves are are all welcome to join. Those who wish to participate in performances may be invited to join the new group Rince Revontulet. This group will mainly be performance based and members will have the opportunity to take part in performances locally and internationally.
Zoom Information Meeting
A casual zoom information meeting will take place on Sunday 3rd April @ 17:00 Helsinki Time. This meeting is for anyone who has attended classes previously as well as those who are interested in joining. I will discuss the plans for the coming year and give everyone a chance to ask any questions they may have. The meeting will take approximately 30-45mins. If you would like to attend this meeting please fill in the form below and the access details will be sent before the meeting.
