Heritage Irish Stepdancers
July 2017 Schedule Information!

 

Our current Spring Semester will run through Saturday, June 24 with the same class schedule as May. If you will NOT be attending class in June, please email us or drop us a note in the tuition box, and we will make sure that you are not invoiced for the month.

July will be its own tuition month with a special schedule. We will be running feis practices at all three locations to help get dancers ready for Colorado Irish Festival Feis and Mile High City Feis, and at the end of the month we will be having a summer camp and some special classes.

Our Fall Semester will run from August 1 through November 17. We will be sending out information about the Fall Semester in a few weeks.
  
The July class schedule is at the bottom of the page. To register for classes in July, click on the link at the top of the schedule, and you will be taken to the Sign Up Genius page where you can sign up for the classes you will be attending. Since we will be offering a drop-in tuition option in July, be sure to sign up for all the individual class dates that you’d like to attend.
 
Classes must have at least 5 students to run, so sign up right away to make sure your class runs. Register by Saturday, June 17 to reserve your spot in class.
 
Sign Up Genius will send you a reminder 3 days before each class date that you have registered for.
 
Plan carefully before registering: after June 17, you will be charged for any classes you have registered for, even if your plans later change and you are unable to attend.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use makeups from the Spring Semester in July; Spring Semester makeups must be used by June 27.
 
Please let us know if you have any questions!
 
Competition Class Requirements
If you are planning on competing at Colorado Irish Festival Feis or Mile High City Feis, you need to take at least 1 feis practice if you are in Beginner 1-Intermediate 1 level class, or at least 2 feis practices if you are Intermediate 2-Champion 2.
 
If you are not able to attend these feis practices, contact us and we can discuss your options.   
Tuition
For July, you will have two options for tuition: you can pay for the month, or you can pay per class.
 
Paying for the month covers four classes during July. These classes do not all have to be on the same day of the week or at the same time; you can mix and match classes. Just be sure to register for all the dates you want to attend.
 
If you will not be able to attend four classes during the tuition month and prefer to pay per class, you may do that instead. There is no family discount for the per class option.
 
Monthly tuition for the first 4 classes per calendar month:
$80 for Beginner 2 and above
$60 for Basics and Beginner 1
 
Additional 4 classes for dancer or family members (same household):
+$40 for Beginner 2 and above
+$30 for Basics and Beginner 1
 
Per class tuition:
$25 for Beginner 2 and above
$20 for Basics and Beginner 1
 
Special tuition deal! Register and pay for classes by June 17 and get $10 off the monthly rate (for the first 4 classes per month) or $5 off the per class rate. You can pay at class, or you can pay online by using this link:

Summer Camp
We will be holding a summer camp at the Friendship Center from Monday, July 24 through Thursday, July 27. Summer camp is open to dancers of all ages and levels! Dancers will work on conditioning, form, and solo dances from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon every day, have a lunch break from 12:00-1:00 p.m., and then work on group dances from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Cost:  $125 for the entire week, both morning and afternoon sessions
$100 for the entire week, morning sessions only
$75 for the entire week, afternoon sessions only
$50 per day for both morning and afternoon sessions
$40 per day for morning sessions only
$30 per day for afternoon sessions only

Teacher Training

Dancers who are at least 13 years old and Intermediate 1 or higher in level can become assistant teachers! Teaching earns you credit toward your classes, helps Heritage, and also helps you become a better dancer yourself.
 
If you are interested in becoming an assistant (or continuing to be an assistant for the 2017-2018 school year), here’s what you need to do:

  1. Sign up for at least one of the Teacher Training seminars. They’ll be held on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Friendship Center. If you can’t either seminar, please let us know.
  2. Sign up for at least one Blitz Teaching slot for every level you’re interested in teaching. For instance, if you are interested in teaching Basics, Beginner 1, and Beginner 2, you need to sign up for two Blitz Teaching sessions for Basics-Beginner 1 and one session for Beginner 2 and above. During Blitz Teaching, all of the assistants will take turns teaching dancers the steps for that level. This will help you go over the steps as well as give you teaching practice.

 
After you’ve signed up, we’ll contact with you with details about which steps you’ll be teaching during Steps Blitz. There will be no charge for the Teacher Training seminars, since the teaching you will do for the Steps Blitzes will cover that.

 

Fall Semester Survey
 
You can help us plan our Fall Semester by filling out the survey below:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WD93Y63

This survey will let us know what days, times, and locations are best for you for taking class. Also, we are thinking about adding some additional kinds of classes (like group dance), and this survey will help us decide if we have enough interest to do that.

Thanks for your input!

Feis practices are open to dancers of all ages and levels. Dancers in Basics or Beginner 1 will only stay for the first hour of the class.
