IRISH DANCE CAMPS FOR RETURNING STUDENTS
Summer Camps help to eliminate any gaps in basic technique and will introduce dancers to new skills while having fun with Teelin friends. These camps will prepare students for some of the more complicated steps in their classes next year. Students in Teelin Summer Camps drill a LOT of Irish dance skills in a short period of time. Due to this intensity, students who participate in a summer camp are often able to advance more quickly.

Prerequisites are required for each camp, based on class level during the 2017-18 school year at Teelin. If in doubt of which camp to attend, please ask.
