Irish Dancing for Kids.


A complete preschool dance programme to help boys and girls aged 2 to 5 years old, develop skills around coordination, self-esteem and social skills though dance, music and play.

Teaching Irish Dancing for over 30 years.

We are very excited to be Jump'n'Jig to our range of classes offered at Scoil Ard Rince.

This is a complete preschool dance programme to help 2 to 5 year olds develop skills around coordination, self-esteem and social skills though dance, music and play. 

The program was developed by Fiona Holmes, a qualified teacher and adjudicator with the CLRG, and also a qualified and registered school teacher. Classes provide pre-schoolers with the fundamental basics of Irish Dancing, through the use of popular nursery rhymes, Irish music, the use of props, colour and plenty of fun. 

The program is divided into three levels, to ensure classes can be modified for children of different ages and gross motor skills. 

Dance shoes are not needed in the early classes, children to wear socks and we can organise dance shoes through a local supplier when needed. Jump'n'Jig t-shirt and own shorts will be best suited to the programme. 

An introduction to dance for boys and girls.

A Fun Way of Learning.

Our training is well rounded and focuses on all aspects of Irish Dancing preparing students for the future. 

Scoil Ard Rince is one of the most successful Irish Dancing Schools within Australia, producing many National and State Champions in both Solo and Team events. Our Teaching staff are fully qualified professionals, registered with the Irish Dancing Commission in Ireland as well as with AIDA Inc, and AIDA QLD branches here in Australia. We all hold current Blue Card, Working with Children Checks, and have had First Aide Training and experience. 

This innovative new Preschool Program offers the very best introduction to Irish Dancing for your little one. Not only is it fun and interactive while building social skills, but the foundation of the class ensures that the children are exploring their bodies to develop important gross motor and cognitive abilities.

We have had amazing success with classes so far, with wonderful feedback from families. We look forward to continuing to build this program and inspire many budding young dancers!
