FREE CEILI CLASSES - new!
Take advantage of these opportunities for some free classes this August!

We are pleased to announce that two members of our Teelin community will be taking their Irish dancing teacher exams in mid-September. Meg Ortel is preparing to take the TMRF exam (ceili teacher certification test), and Joe Duffey is preparing to take the TCRG exam (to become a fully certified Irish dancing teacher). Candidates for each exam are required to thoroughly know the 30 traditional ceili dances, and to demonstrate their knowledge in front of a panel of international examiners over the course of these multi-day exams. Studying can be an arduous task, and practical experience is very helpful.

Please help Meg and Joe study by giving them practice opportunities to teach some of these dances! These FREE classes are open to dancers age 9 or older, any level of experience. Adults, including parents of dancers, are very welcome! If you are only able to attend part of a class, that may still be helpful too, please send an email to meg@teelin.com.

FRIDAY CLASSES & WEEKEND WORKSHOPS
Supplemental classes are a great way for students to boost their skill level with extra dance practice opportunities throughout the school year. Note: Workshops and extra classes may not substitute a regular class.

DRILLS CLASS
Drills classes are an excellent opportunity for students to focus on how a certain skill should be executed, and to repeat it correctly in class many times, thereby building endurance and instilling proper muscle memory. Drills classes are most beneficial for students who will then take these lessons and apply them to their steps during independent practice time.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Private lessons are a supplemental opportunity for a student to receive more individualized instruction and feedback from a teacher. Private lessons are meant to support (not replace) a dancer’s class instruction and independent practice. Because time and studio space are limited, priority is given to those dancers who practice independently and will therefore be able to maximize the productivity of their private lesson time.


Read our policies regarding private lessons, and find links to the lesson request forms...

PRIVATE LESSON POLICIES (download)

ALL private lessons must follow this procedure:

1. To request a private lesson, fill out the appropriate online Private Lesson Request Form:

Note that ALL private lessons need to be requested through one of these forms, even if the lesson will take place at a home instead the studio, and even if the lesson has been discussed verbally and will be occurring soon. This is an important communication step to help Maureen keep track of private lessons.

2. Maureen will receive the request, and will either reply to you herself, or will forward the request to another instructor, and then that instructor will contact you.

3. All private lessons held at the Teelin studio must follow the procedures to reserve studio space, per the guidelines posted on the Studio Calendar page of our school website. The reservation must be marked as a private lesson, not a practice time, and will be listed with both the name of the instructor and the name of the student(s) in the lesson.

4. If the lesson is being taught by someone other than Maureen, then that teacher is required to connect with Maureen prior to the lesson being taught to briefly review a lesson plan, and tell her when and where the lesson will be held. That teacher is also required to send a summary email to Maureen and copied to the student/family after the lesson has been taught.

5. Students should bring both a notebook and a video recording device (such as an iPhone) so that they may leave the lesson with tangible feedback to then work on in their independent practice. If the lesson is with a teacher other than Maureen, share those videos and notes with Maureen after the lesson.

6. Parents are not allowed to sit in on the private lesson, but may be invited in at the end of the lesson to review notes or to videotape.

7. Lesson fee should be established during the emailed communications prior to the lesson, and then payment should be handed to the instructor at the beginning of the private lesson. The fee for a private lesson is the same amount at the studio or at someone’s home.

If you have any questions about these policies, please ask.


Note: The calendar below only shows class listings, it does not show any private lessons or other independent studio reservations. Those are listed on the Studio Calendar (password required).
