Benefits of Irish Dance Lessons for Kids

Increased Stamina

Irish dancers are known for their stamina. They perform for hours on end sometimes, at competitions or during big shows or parades. Irish Dancers learn to use the air in such a way that it enhances their movements and gives them an extra boost of power when needed.

Core Strength

Irish Dancing requires a lot of core strength. The dance itself is performed mainly in the lower body, but dancers need to maintain their upper bodies in place while they are moving their legs quickly. It takes core strength that is very important for not only Irish dance but also for daily life.

Balance and posture

Irish dancers use their bodies to propel themselves in different ways to enhance their dance moves. It often involves positioning oneself in a way that is not natural for other people, so dancers are constantly working on balance and posture.

Memory building:

Dancing is a visual art form, especially Irish dance, because it does not use music. Dancers have to remember the patterns they are executing and put them together in various ways to create different dances or steps. It helps build memory, which can be beneficial for all sorts of things, including schoolwork and work-related tasks.


Irish Dancing is a way to learn how to use one’s body in various ways. The confidence dancers gain from being able to memorize moves and execute them successfully is not something that can be taught, but instead, it comes with their hard work and passion for Dancing.
