Irish Dance classes for children in Frankfurt

9 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello!

We are presently considering a move to Frankfurt. My daughter is very into Irish Dance, and I am wondering if any other expat kids do Irish Dance classes in or around Frankfurt? We do not speak German, but are excited to learn.

Thanks!

A

Hi,

The only dance schools with classes I'm aware of is in Friedberg (north of Frankfurt) http://www.ballettstudio.biz/ and a dance group and a school in Wiesbaden http://www.celtic-knots.de and http://www.fiddle-and-feet.de/

In Ffm there's one adult class: http://www.ceol-beag.de/ and then there's Irish Set Dance Frankfurt, setdancersfrankfurt@googlemail.com

Perhaps if you contact them they have more info on other classes in Frankfurt.

Hope this helps you and your daughter a bit.

Greetings.

We moved to Frankfurt in August and have also been looking for Irish dancing classes but without success.Have been told by a colleague that there is someone teaching here and he will try and get me her contact details so if I manage to find out any information I'll pass it on.

You could try getting in touch with the Irish Dance Germany association. Their website is a bit of a mess, but maybe they could give you some leads.

There's also these people, that seem linked somehow with these people, but I'm not sure if they take children (or only adults). Can't hurt to ask though!

And then there's the Irish set dance group - they seem quite active, but I don't think that's what you're looking for at all.

My daughter goes to Rogoschinski in Friedberg (the first link in the post you refer to), here is their facebook page. I know lots of kids who do regular ballet, jazz and tap, but I'd have to ask around who does Irish dance. Overall it's a good school and the kids are always happy. I don't know much about dancing or ballet, but the school is a part of some important group and when the kids test to go to the next level, the testers fly in from England. So although they are a small and personal school, they're pretty serious as well.

Fiddle & Feet Dance school...

Dance school Wiesbaden

This is in Wiesbaden but you can drive there in 40 minutes from Frankfurt approx depending on traffic. Ther is also a regular

train connection and it also takes about 45 minutes..

Hi Amy,
