LEVEL 3

For our most advanced students (prelim and open champs). Dancers will train and master all soft shoe (reel/slip jig) and all hard shoe (treble jig/hornpipe) dances. This is a very challenging level and requires dedication and commitment to practicing both in the studio and at home.

DRILLS, WORKSHOPS & PRIVATE LESSONS

Workshops: These intensives are scheduled periodically throughout the year, usually leading up to major competitions and events. 

Private lessons: One-on-one lessons are available upon request. Contact Megan at theharperacademy@gmail.com for scheduling and pricing.

 

Dancers will be evaluated and placed in the appropriate class for which the student is best suited.

Competition level is not always the deciding factor for class levels.

A detailed pricing sheet is available upon request.
