  • Dancer must actively participate and engage in classes

  • Dancer must regularly practice at home

There are specific circumstances where private lessons will be authorized outside of the noted general rules above:

  • Dancer has transferred from another school

  • Dancer has qualified for the next dancing level, and needs to learn additional steps for class

  • Dancer has qualified for Oireachtas and needs to learn Oireachtas steps for class

  • Dancer is preparing for a grade examination

  • Dancer is returning from a longer-term injury or illness

  • Teacher has suggested private lessons

 

 

 

 

 

*Generally reserved for PC/OC dancers, but may offer shared private lessons for non-champ Oireachtas soloist (Sept-Nov). Beginner-Prizewinner dancers may also request a 30 minute consultation with Meghan (based on availability).
