Welcome to The Hendricks School of Irish Dance. At The Hendricks School, we focus on teaching traditional Irish Dancing. We welcome all students, ages three through adult, whether you are looking to dance competitively or simply for the fun and exercise. As a young dancer, Alicia learned many valuable lessons in Irish dancing. Alicia learned poise and self-confidence, she learned to work hard for whatever she wants to achieve, she learned how to win and also how to lose in competition. Alicia traveled extensively and made friends to last a lifetime in Irish dancing. As a teacher, Alicia's primary goal is to instill a love of Irish dance and all that goes with it to her students.
What to Expect
Dancers should wear shorts or leggings and a t-shirt for dance class. It is crucial that the teacher be able to see the dancer's legs. Hair should be pulled back and away from the face for class. Proper Irish dancing shoes should be worn for all classes. Information about ordering proper shoes can be obtained from Alicia. Pre-beginner and beginner dancers can wear black ballet slippers. For their own health and safety, dancers should arrive for class warmed-up and ready to begin dancing. Regular attendance is most important so dancers can keep up with the pace of their class.
