COVID UPDATE: Due to the many restrictions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are not accepting new beginner students in our children’s classes at this time. Please email us if you would like to be contacted once we are able to welcome you to our program!
Welcome to the Beginner’s and New Students section of our website! This area was designed to help you find information about our class locations, schedule and levels as well as share information about performances, competitions and costuming.
We realize that there is a learning curve when starting Irish dancing and we want to make sure that you are able to access important information.
As you become more involved in the Culkin community, you will learn that our parents are wonderful resources willing to help with any of your questions. During the course of the year, our parents hold New Parent Dancer Meetings to help get you acclimated to the school and answer any questions you may have. Our parents have also helped organize tutorials on how to do your dancer’s hair for a competition as well as first time Oireachtas (Regional Championship) participant meetings.
We are proud to have an incredible support system in our parents and rely on their help to get many of our events off the ground, including the Shoe and Dress Exchange, Culkin School Céilí and Feis Culkin (an Irish dance competition hosted by the school).
If you’d like to get more involved in volunteering, please just let your instructor know and they can point you in the right direction. If you have any suggestions or ideas about other meetings or events needed to help our members, please let your instructor know! We’re always open to hearing your ideas!
