Westwood Irish Dance provides a fun, rewarding and healthy experience for all our students, regardless of age, ability and interest level. Our dancers are taught a solid technique foundation followed by both traditional and modern material. All dancers are taught proper, competition-quality technique from the very beginning, even if they only seek a fun hobby, exercise or the occasional performance. Improper technique, once learned, is not only extremely difficult to unlearn later, it also raises the risk of injury. Irish Dance involves a tremendous amount of body movement without the aid of the arms. This makes proper lower body technique exceptionally important.
Once one master’s basic technique and the structure of the music, Irish dance is very hard to give up. It is a phenomenal form of exercise and promotes good cardiovascular health. When danced with proper technique on proper flooring it offers much less impact to the joints and lower risk of injury than many sports. As is such, Irish Dance is enjoyable by people of all ages and truly provides a lifetime of enjoyment.
