Skills Classes

Academy students rehearsing on stage

Starting in 2022, Siamsa Tíre will start offering its folk theatre classes to students other than those who attend the National Folk Theatre Training Academy. Our professional dancers, musicians, and singers will teach children and young people the dance steps, the musical tunes, and the songs that have become part of the Siamsa Tíre repertoire.

These classes will take place in our theatre here in Tralee.

They will be broken into different age groups, with options for those aged between 7 and 11, 12 and 15, and 16 and 24.

They will be held weekly over a series of four weeks, with each two-hour-long class being broken down into three 40-minute sessions covering music, song, and dance. We intend to run two series of classes during the spring season and two more in the autumn.

It’s all part of our mission to pass our cultural traditions on to the next generation.

Our next series of classes run from 4th March 2022. To book your place in our next series, pick the age group and skills you want to learn – you can choose one or try all three to avail of our discounted package rates.
