Classesregular class begins as soon as we have enough participants. If you are interested, just drop us a mail we will let you know when we can start. Or why not try one of the classes that are already running? The first trial lesson is free!
Our specials are 3-hour classes for specific topics: Trial lessons are not possible in these.
Make sure you do not miss out on our short intensive beginners classes during "Wiesbaden tanzt" and the "Tanztag Rhein-Main"!
If you like céilí dancing (Irish figure dances), look in on one of our céilí evenings! Or if you need to find more peace and quiet through dancing, Tanja's meditative round dances might be the thing for you.
From time to time we invite renowned guest teachers for workshops. And once every year, students of our school get the opportunity to take part in an intensive training course in Dublin.
Dates for specials and workshops as well as céilí evenings and the intensive course in Dublin are listed below.
There are no classes during the school holidays in Hessen.
And in case you are looking for more than just a favourite pastime: We offer an Irish dance instructors course in cooperation with the Irish National Folk Company, Dublin. These dates are also listed below.
For a more wholistic approach to a dance workout, you can supplement some of your dance classes with a yoga class. Details see below.
Corona information: Our regular classes were back to almost normal since the 18th May 2020 - with a reduced number of participants per class, social distancing and hygiene measures.
Then came the second lockdown, and we're still in it. Please check out our YouTube channel fidfeet for training videos in the meantime!
A huge THANK YOU! to all our students who stand by us in these difficult times! Take good care of yourselves, stay healthy!
