The dancers learn choreographed routines to different styles of music weekly and work on flexibility, technique, coordination and fitness. All classes are designed specifically for the age group and focus on having fun while learning.
The school is involved in different events throughout the year St. Patricks Day Parade, Performances at local events, Dance Examinations held by United Teachers of Dance. The school also has an end of year production where the dancers get to perform on stage and showcase to friends and family what they have been learning.
Aideen Johnson School of Dance was created in 2017 providing an environment for children to learn dance but also have a space where they feel they can be themselves. The school aims for every student to leave class every week with a smile on their faces and grow in confidence through dance.
Aideen Johnson is a qualified teacher with International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and United Teachers of Dance (UTD).
She provides dance classes in Macroom and is also available for primary and secondary school workshops, show choreography, corporate event choreography, lip sync battles and cabaret shows.
