Registration in any Teelin activity denotes understanding and acceptance of Teelin’s “General Information & Policies” listed below. Online registration will be confirmed by email. Payment is due at the time of registration, during the online checkout process. If you have any questions about the policies, or the registration process, send email to registration@teelin.com.

Liability
Teelin cannot be held liable for dancer injury in class or on the premises.

Payment
Registrations are completed online and payment must be submitted to complete the registration process. On the final screen of the online registration, your account
balance will be posted and you will need to check out with your credit card. Any questions about tuition payments should be sent to kathleen@teelin.com. Class sizes are limited, therefore prompt registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Refunds
Teelin reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet a specific enrollment. A full refund will be made when a class is cancelled by Teelin. No refunds will be issued after the second scheduled class of a series if a student or parent decides not to continue, UNLESS approved by Teelin or for medical or other emergency situation.

Inclement Weather / Instructor Injury or Illness
If a class is cancelled due to inclement weather or instructor injury/illness, an email will be sent to all registered students.  Inclement weather cancellations will also be announced on the answering machine at 443-629-7808.

Images and Recording
From time to time Teelin will take pictures or record a Teelin class or event. These pictures and recordings may be used for promoting the school as well as Teelin sponsored events and performances. If a Teelin student should NOT be included in these pictures and recordings, the Teelin office must be informed in writing by a responsible adult at the time of registration.

For transfer students only (first time registering at Teelin School):
The following information must be submitted to Teelin upon registering for a Teelin class.

  • Name of former Irish Dance School and Teacher.
  • Have you ever competed in Irish Dance? If yes, list the date and level of your last competition.

All students transferring from an IDTANA school will be charged a $25 IDTANA transfer fee in addition to all Teelin registration and tuition fees.

Classes and camps are listed in chronological order in the embedded chart below. Events highlighted in yellow are open to beginners; all other events require prerequisite skills.

Advanced registration is required for all camps and classes.

Summer classes at Teelin are “pay per class”, and do not follow the same class schedule as school-year sessions. Register for as many as you can! Tuition is $20 for each 60-min class. See the Studio Director online registration link for class descriptions and details, and send email to registration@teelin.com with any questions.

Important – If there is insufficient enrollment for a class, it will be cancelled, and any registered students will be notified by email on the morning of the class, and tuition charge deleted.

For young students who are new to Irish Dancing, summer camp is a fun way to learn a lot of Irish dance in a short amount of time! We also offer several Beginner Classes for young dancers, and some for older dancers too! The week-long camp sessions, as well as the pay-per-class Beginner classes, all take place at the studio.

Summer Camps help to eliminate any gaps in basic technique and introduce dancers to new skills while having fun with Teelin friends. These opportunities will prepare students for some of the more complicated steps in their future classes. Students 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, based on class level during the 2023-24 school year at Teelin. If in doubt of which camp to attend, please ask.

There is an annual $10 summer registration fee per family for camp registrations.
