Irish Dance

For all your Irish dancing needs, look no further than Tara Academy.

They offer classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. They also offer social classes for those who want to dance in order to be a part of a community, get fit and improve at a skill. In their own words it’s “aerobics with an Irish twist.”

They are the only school in the Northern Territory that is registered under the An Coimisiún Le Rincí Gaelacha (Irish Dancing Commission based in Dublin, Ireland).

The one downside is that their classes are rather pricey. For example, an intermediate student hoping to book an hour-long lesson will have to pay $180 for this.

Of course, their teachers are certified and experienced, however, if the hip-pocket is a concern for you, perhaps your search for dancing mentoring should be better directed elsewhere.
