Having taught since 2006, Rebecca coaches dancers in competitive and performance Irish Dance. She tailors her coaching to individual needs to help dancers learn new skills and develop existing ones at their own pace, in a positive and encouraging environment
Here's what she has to say about Irish dance ...
What can dancers expect from your classes?
Dancers can expect to have fun learning Irish dance in a positive and friendly environment! You can expect classes to be tailored to your own needs and pace, and to feel part of a supportive and inclusive team.
What do you love about teaching Irish dance?
I really love to see the look on people's faces when they learn something new; master something they've found a real challenge; or help their friends to master something. That never gets old.
Is there a person/quote/group who inspires the way you teach?
'Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.' - Nikos Kazantzakis
What sort of music do you use in class?
A bit of everything! From chart music for our warm ups, to traditional Irish music, to modern takes on it for showpieces. Requests are always welcome too!
